The Zimbabwean authorities will build houses for the staff of all the central hospitals of the country. According to the latest data, the construction of two apartment buildings will start in March 2020 in Harare.
Obadiah Moyo, the country’s Health Minister, stated the decision to construct the buildings was made in order to help the medical staff resolve their economic difficulties, as the government, he emphasised, was concerned about the conditions in which the hospital workers lived.
“Accommodation is one of the key issues we want to address to ensure the welfare for doctors is covered,” he said. “We want them to stay close to their working space so that they will cut transport costs although we will also provide transport for them.”
The land for the construction of houses has been determined. The construction work will start in the nearest future.
