Doctors Give Govt 72-hour Ultimatum Or Face Constitutional Court Challenge

Speaking to Daily News, Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR) spokesperson Fortune Nyamande said the board resolved to give Government 72 hours to announce measures that will enable allocation of foreign currency to purchase drugs.

Daily News reports if Government fails to do so, ZADHR will file an urgent constitutional court challenge citing government’s violation of the right to healthcare as provided under international and the Constitution. Nyamande said ZADHR will approach the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission, the African Human and People’s Rights Commission for intervention. Said Nyamande:

The board resolved and gave government through the ministry of Health and Child Care, the ministry of Finance and Economic Development and the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe a 72-hour ultimatum to announce measures that will ensure adequate allocation of foreign currency from the central bank for drug procurement. If no remedial action is urgently instituted we shall approach the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission, the African Human and People’s Rights Commission and other international bodies for urgent intervention.
