The Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) has revealed that the US$1 Million availed by government towards procurement of medicines and equipment needed in public hospitals is not enough to meet their requirements.
In an interview with 263Chat, ZHDA Spokesperson Dr Mthabisi Bhebhe said on average they need a minimum of USD$5,5 Million per month. ZHDA said they met in January and discussed issues to improve the doctors’ working conditions but very few things have been fulfilled making the situation even more critical for them.
In their letter to government, the Health Services Board said hospitals were in a dire state with no basic medical supplies with basic and lifesaving medicines unavailable while bemoaning the absence of communication on what the parent ministry is doing to address the challenges.
