Government has reiterated its commitment to improved health service delivery in the country.

Northern Province Permanent Secretary Hlobotha Nkunika says government is alive to the fact that the health sector is facing various challenges.

Among these is shortage of workers hence the reason for enrolling more health workers in many parts of the country, he said.

Mr. Nkunika was speaking at the weekend during the graduation ceremony at Chengelo School of Nursing in Kasama District of Northern Province.

The PS further called on private sector to continue supplementing Government’s efforts by opening more nursing schools in order to maximize the number of schools offering trainings for health staff.

He also commended Chengelo school administration to increase their number of student enrolment.

Mr. Nkunika said Government will continue offering favorable working environment for tertiary institutions that are offering health courses in the area.

And Chengelo school of Nursing director Baton Mugala thanked Government for the financial support toward the institution.
