The Ministry of Health and Child Care will have monthly assessments of operations at the country’s health facilities to ascertain how resources can best be used in the health sector.
This was said by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary Dr Agnes Mahomva during an interview with State media at the United Bulawayo Hospitals. She said:

That assessment is going to tell us the gaps. We are going to do those assessments monthly and we also promise that once we have them, we are more than happy to make sure that you get the reports.
Mahomva was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of a management concept, Kaizen, a Japanese philosophy being adopted by Zimbabwe’s health sector.
According to Investopedia, Kaizen is a Japanese business philosophy regarding the processes that continuously improve operations and involve all employees.
