The Malawi Blood Transfusion Service (MBTS) was established in 2003 by the Government of Malawi through the Ministry of Health as an independent Trust responsible for the provision of safe and adequate supply of blood and blood products for patients in all authorized hospitals in Malawi. The main objective of the MBTS is to reduce the transmission of HIV and other infections transmissible through blood transfusion. It is thus important that MBS establishes HR policies, philosophies and initiatives that will enhance high employee and organisational performance, high employee commitment and effective talent management with the aim of retaining high performing employees and ensuring competitiveness. It is in light of this that MBTS intends to hold training for its employees in Performance Management Systems and Performance Appraisal with a view of contributing to effective and objective performance of its employees.
