Health minister meets senior doctors

A meeting between Health and Child Care Minister Dr Obadiah Moyo and senior doctors and consultants is reportedly taking place in the capital Harare with a view to map the way forward following doctors’ threat to go on strike.

The doctors are citing lack of medicines and other sundries in hospitals a situation which they say is making operating conditions difficult.

The senior doctors and consultants say they are not on strike but are frustrated with working conditions.

Last year doctors staged a crippling strike until government made concrete promises to improve conditions later this year.
