Health Minister, Joseph Kasonde, has reiterated government’s commitment to addressing the shortage of health workers in Kasama district.

Speaking when he officiated at Kasama School of Nursing graduating ceremony, Dr Kasonde said nurses play a critical role in the provision of health care services in the country.

He said it is in this vein that government is dedicating itself to ensuring that the current shortage of over 500 health workers in Kasama district becomes a thing of the past.

Dr Kasonde disclosed that the authority has made significant progress in addressing the challenge as government has already approved the recruitment of over 1000 health workers across the country this year.

He, however, urged the graduating nurses to dedicate their profession to serving the people in communities if their services are to be appreciated by the public.

Dr Kasonde noted that in many instances patients fail to appreciate services offered in public institutions due to lack of dedication and passion by some workers.
And speaking at the same event, Zambia Nurses Union leadership commended Government for its positive support towards its members across the country.
