GOVERNMENT has reiterated its commitment to improving health care provision in line with the Health and Well-being cluster under the National Development Strategy One.

The newly-appointed Deputy Minister of Health and Child Care, Honourable Sleiman Kwidini toured Chegutu Hospital, Kadoma General Hospital and Muduvuri Pan African Hospital in Mashonaland West Province this Friday to appreciate their operations.

Honourable Kwidini reiterated the government’s resolve to capacitate health facilities to improve health care provision countrywide.

“We had been moving in Chegutu and Kadoma hospitals to see and appreciate the government’s hospitals as well as Muduvuri Hospital. We are happy with what we have seen the government doing in capacitating hospitals in terms of medication and equipment. We are also happy with our patriotic staff who continue to support our President’s vision of providing health to all. We also want to appreciate our private partners like Cde Muduvuri who is catering for our elderly, war veterans and the disabled,” he said.

Public-private partnerships are bearing fruit, as witnessed by the establishment of the Muduvuri Pan African Hospital in Kadoma.

“We opened this hospital with support from the President and Government. We hope to continue supporting the government’s initiatives. As black people and above all, Zimbabweans, we need to support the President’s vision of attaining an upper middle-income economy by 2030,” said the Director of Muduvuri Pan African Hospital, Mr Jimayi Muduvuri.

It emerged that the government has improved medical stocks in all hospitals to above 65 percent, while anesthetic machines and theatre beds have been procured for hospitals in Mashonaland West Province.

A General Nurse Training School is also being established at Kadoma General Hospital, while specialist doctors from Bulawayo have been organised to cater for special medical conditions in the province.
