Govt Promises Doctors Flats, ZUPCO Buses & Food

The Minister of Health and Child Care, Obadiah Moyo, said that the government is working flat out to improve the working conditions for health personnel and to that end, a meeting with striking doctors has been scheduled for Thursday, 14th November 2019.

Among some of the perks medical practitioners should expect, are residential flats, subsidised transport and food at their work stations. Said Moyo:

Government is in the process of identifying flats to ease accommodation challenges facing junior doctors and Zupco buses will be availed to ferry them to and from their work stations.

Food will also be provided at their work stations while all the surgical materials will be availed in all the health institutions as required.

Doctors at public health institutions have been on strike since September 3, 2019, citing incapacitation. The government has responded to the job action by firing 286 doctors for absenteeism.
