Govt claims debts owed health practitioners receiving attention, as nurses mark day


Government is dismantling debt owed to nurses and other health workers, says Lusaka Province Minister, Sheal Mulyata.

Mulyata explained that this was being done to ensure that the health providers worked efficiently without any worries.

She also said government would soon start placing nurses in their right salary scales and give study leave to deserving students so that they further their studies.

Mulyata said this on Saturday while presiding at this year’s international Nurses day celebration.

“The UPND administration under the leadership of President Hakainde Hichilema is committed to make sure that conditions of services for health worker were improved and improve service delivery to the people,” Mulyata said.

She thanked the nurses and midwives that had contributed to the wellbeing of the nation through the provision of quality health care.

“Thank you so much and congratulations for the successes that have been scored in your line of duty because you deal with lives and have a healing touch in your hands,” she said.

Nursing and Midwifery Council of Zambia Registrar and Chief Executive Officer, Beauty Zimba, commended government for the massive recruitment of nurses and midwives which has improved the provision of health service.

Zimba said government must further increase the budgetary allocation to the health sector so that the demand could be met.

She said this through a representative, David Mbewe.
