Secretary to the cabinet Roland Msiska says government is increasing capacity in addressing the various health issues affecting the country.

Dr. Msiska says, guided by the seventh national development plan (7NDP), government will continue to upgrade, construct and modernise health infrastructure across the country.

Speaking when he officiated at the opening of the MB CHB Lecture theatre at Lusaka Apex Medical University (LAMU), yesterday, Dr. Msiska highlighted that 275 out of 650 planned health posts have been built and are now operational.

He has however implored citizens of the country to be patient as his government delivers on its campaign promises as regards the health sector.

And LAMU Director of Medical Education, Professor John Mudenda says there is need to increase training institutions as set out in the Ministry of Health policies to address the country’s shortage of skilled workforce.

Prof. Mudenda notes that government has been making substantive efforts to help mitigate shortage of qualified health human resource by partnering with and licensing private health training institutions.

He has since commended government for supporting his institution in training health professionals.

  1. Dr Msiska, how many times have you made similar pronouncements yet not even panadol can be administered in most clinics? Is it a norm in Zambia to make empty promises every year? Sometimes its better not to talk about things you have been talking each and every year. Improving health system calls for political will and it does not make any sense to build hundreds of clinics without drugs and only one nurse is stationed to attend to hundreds of patients. Mr Secretary to the Cabinet you really need to be serious do not just read empty speeches.

  2. @POLITICS OF THE BELLY
    Don’t expose your ignorance and lack of insights. If you don’t know what is happening then keep quite. Dr Msiska is very correct in his adress. Only haters will choke

    • Mr Dendeke sir, I salute you because you and your family have access to quality health services provided by the Ministry of Health. I know your relatives in the village are able to access the best health care. Those of us who are ignorant of the good services you receive in our clean hospitals cannot keep quiet to be given fake promises by those who live better lives. I think you should equally shut up.
