Zimbabwe: Govt appreciates nurses' work despite challenges by katty : October 22, 2018, 09:18:33 AM
The government appreciates the works of nurses despite challenges associated with their work which they face, The Minister of Health and Child Care Dr Obadiah Moyo has said.

This came to light recently when Minister Moyo was officiating at the 60th nurses graduation ceremony for Harare Central Hospital.


 
Moyo said despite the challenges faced by nurses such as shortages of resources like medicines, nurses immensely play an important part in the nation's health sector.

"I am also pleased to inform you that the government is aware of the critical role nurses play in our health delivery system, especially given the challenges of shortages of resources...," he said.

Moyo said nurses have really helped in the treating of current diseases such as cholera which have emerged.

"... the emerging new diseases and the upsurge of Non Communicable Diseases which are being treated in our health institutions country wide," said Moyo.

The minister also said people must join hands in order to meet the goals of the millennium development which was supposed to be a done deal by now.

"However, there is need for multisectoral collaboration and commitment to achieve the millenium development goals which were supposed to have been achieved by the year 2015," he said.

Moyo said the goals can only be fulfilled by well trained and obligated nurses.

"I am appealing to these graduands to play a pivotal role in achieving these long awaited for goals because they can only be achieved by well trained, knowledgeable committed and skilled nurses and midwives," he said.

The School of Nursing at Harare Central Hospital has four programmes which include Registered General Nurses, Intensive and Coronary Care Nurses, Operating Theatre Nurses and an Advanced Diploma in Neonatal Intensive and Paediatric Care Nurses.
