He said that is why Zambia needs better health care that is available to all citizens.Last week The UPND president addressed medical students at the Ridgeway Campus in Lusaka where he reiterated that Youth empowerment is an essential part of sound economic management. He said a vibrant economic policy is what leads to access to education for all, employment opportunities for our youths and the development of our institutions
‘I hear all too often that families are unable to pay for necessary health care, or that local hospitals lack the resources necessary to care for the community.In a nation with as much potential as ours, we can do better for our people. As President, I will add more doctors and nurses,raise the standard of care and increase medicine stocks.
Mr. Hichilema said in order to make this happen, Zambia needs real leadership and the onus is going to be on each voter to make sure they vote for UPND on 20 January 2015 and ask friends and family to do the same.
