Teamwork and dedication to duty must drive service delivery in the country’s hospital sector.
The First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa called for this commitment when she visited Mpilo Hospital in Bulawayo this today.
It is a career that she dreamt off as a young girl to help others medically and today it drives her passion towards ensuring that Zimbabwe’s health delivery system is improved for the better.
An earlier visit to some of the country’s hospitals left the First Lady with a deep understanding of the challenges bedevilling the health sector and now she is on an agenda to help see to its transformation and in a way satisfy her unfulfilled aspirations.
“I am not a nurse or a medical practitioner, but i want to use my mouth to transform the health delivery in Zimbabwe especially in marginalised areas,” she said.
Amai Mnangagwa said there is need for hospitals to come up with in-house projects to augment their allocation from government adding projects like fish farming which require minimal capital must be considered.
The visit by the First Lady saw hundreds of Bulawayo residents seizing the opportunity to go for a free cervical and breast cancer screening process.
Amai Mnangagwa also toured the kitchen and the viac clinic before donating food stuffs to the hospital.
