“Situation Has Improved In Hospitals But Not Back To Where It Must,” – Doctors

Dr Anesu Rangwane the national spokesperson of the Progressive Doctors Association of Zimbabwe (PDAZ) that was formed late last year has said that although the situation has improved in hospitals, it is not yet back to where it must.

Speaking to the Chronicle, a State-run paper, Dr Rangwane said that the health situation in the country has improved because of the new association.

All junior doctors here at Mpilo hospital have taken up their posts and it is a similar situation at UBH and Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.

He added that the situation was not back to where it must be although there was some notable positive development.

Rangwane also said that the union also shares the same grievances as those of the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) where they came from adding that its formation was necessitated by a need to improve the plight of doctors and patients.

Doctors last year embarked on a months-long industrial action over paltry salaries they were receiving and poor working conditions which they said was putting their lives in great danger.

Some doctors returned to work after telecoms business mogul, Dr Strive Masiyiwa offered to pay them salaries, give them transport and training.
