ZMA advises Government to re-build the image of the Ministry of Health

Published

on

ZAMBIA Medical Association (ZMA) Secretary General Dr. Masiku Phiri has advised the government to re-build the image of the Ministry of Health as a short term measure of mitigating COVID-19.
In a statement, Dr Phiri said doing so will offer variable accountability of the COVID-19 donations as well as bring transparency in procurement processes.
He has also appealed to the citizens to retain their confidence in the health sector.
“In addition to the long-term position papers plus policy guidelines submitted to relevant authorities previously, ZMA would further like to advance the following short-term measures aimed at mitigating the current situation that is on the brink of getting out of hand; Re-build image of the Ministry of Health by offering verifiable accountability of COVID-19 donations and greater transparency in procurement processes,” Dr Phiri said.
“Public confidence in this vital ministry needs to be restored urgently.  ZMA appeals to the general public to retain the much needed confidence in the Health Sector. The ministry must not only be responsible, but must be seen to be responsible in order to lead a collective response.”
He also asked the Government to decentralize COVID-19 treatment by establishing facility preparedness of lower level hospitals including General Hospitals, District Hospitals and First-Level Hospitals in order to control the referral flow and routine screening of the Public.
Dr Phiri further said government must expedite the acquisition of the COVID-19 vaccine and give priority to essential workers and vulnerable population.
He further said there is need to motivate Healthcare workers by awarding them economically reflective COVID-19 incentives, and dismantling the Personal Emoluments owed to them by government.
Meanwhile, Dr Phiri said government should also employ over 5, health care workers including the newly graduates that are currently wasting in skills by idling in communities without jobs.
