Government says it is doing everything possible to increasing the availability of skilled human resource in the health sector.

Minister of Health Joseph Kasonde said increasing the human resource in the health sector is top on government’s developmental agenda as it is vital to the effective implementation of all activities in the sector.

Dr. Kasonde said government is committed to ensure that the current availability of the state of the art health equipment and infrastructure is supported by adequate and skilled human resource.

The Minister of Health said this in Lusaka today during the fifth combined graduation ceremony of the Dental Training School.

A total of 175 students graduated as dental technologist, dental therapists and dental assistants.

Dr. Kaonde commended Dental Training School for being an active participant in the important process of human resources development in the health sector.

Earlier, Dental Training School Principal Nalumino Saila said the school is currently faced with infrastructure challenges such as classroom and accommodation to carter for the rising number of students.

Dr. Saila said the growing demand for dentist in the country and the world over has seen an increased enrolment of students but with inadequate infrastructure to fully support their studies.

  1. Congratulations to the graduates and hopefully they find work and contribute to national development though the healthcare sector. If what the minister is saying is true about the healthcare being on their top agenda, it is then a high time they also increased funding for research purposes in the sector. Acquiring new technology is important but we have our own problems in the healthcare sector which need to be addressed and research may play a big role in solving the current problems.

  2. I would love very much to contribute by working with children as I have done health care studies in south Africa and have experience with kids and elderly looking forward to to see this work.
