Minister Masebo Plans To Employ More Health Workers

Health Minister SYLVIA MASEBO says it will take three years for the Ministry of Health to recruit enough staff to reach its full establishment.

Ms MASEBO says the eleven thousand two hundred health personnel who will be recruited this year are just the first step in an ongoing process.

Speaking when she met Heads of Health Facilities in Kitwe, Copperbelt Province, Ms MASEBO said the Ministry of Health currently has 51 percent of human resource in its establishment.

She said the New Dawn Government will work hard to ensure in the next three years more health personnel are recruited to increase staffing levels.

Meanwhile, Ms MASEBO said the impending recruitment of health personnel will include various disciplines such as doctors, nurses, radiographers, biomedical staff and others.

The Health Minister said the recruitment will be holistic as the work in the health sector involves many players.
