Expatriate healthcare professionals working in Zimbabwe could be at risk of losing their job after a parliamentary panel asserted that many foreign doctors are "incompetent".
According to News Day, MPs called on the government to encourage more of the country's expatriate healthcare workers that have relocated abroad since the onset of Zimbabwe's economic decline to come home.
"Due to the limited capacity of the training institutions to produce the required health workers, the ministry has to rely on foreign recruitment of most specialist health professionals from countries like Cuba, DRC, China, North and South Korea," pointed out Gerald Gwinji, permanent secretary to the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare.
Another politician, Editor Matamisa, stated that the country's reliance on cheap labour in the form of expatriate workers could put the health of Zimbabweans at risk.
Meanwhile, All Africa reports that all city council clinics in the capital, Harare, will start offering TB treatment and HIV counselling and testing services from next January.
