The Ministry of Health and Child Care needs more than $60 million to bring sanity in the health sector.
Charging of United States dollars on medicine by some pharmacies is illegal.
This was said by the Minister of Health and Child Care Dr Obediah Moyo who said the government is trying to engage various players in the health sector to raise money which will bring the health sector to normalcy.
Dr Moyo was speaking during the graduation ceremony of 343 nurses from Chitungwiza Central Hospital today afternoon.
“It is not right for pharmacists to charge United States dollars. The RBZ has already given us money although it’s not sufficient,” he said.
Meanwhile, it was a day to remember for graduands who got Diplomas in Nursing and Midwifery as they celebrated their achievements.
The graduation ceremony was punctuated by song and dance.
