Dr Hungwe says the commission is ready to work with the Ministry of Health and Child Care to come up with strategic interventions to improve service delivery.

He said, “One of the most important institutions responsible for service delivery is the Ministry of health and Child Care and it needs support of the commission in terms of more clearly defining its strategic its organisational purposes and the strategic intervention it will drive forward in health service delivery. The nature of the strategic interventions that it will need to drive forward the health sector. They will also be provided with efficient support to structure themselves in a manner that enables them to execute their duties and will also help to select the people that can perform those duties.”

The commission has an oversight role of keeping line ministries in check in the execution of their duties.
