ZHTS In Context
Over the past ten years the quality of Zimbabwean public health services and training system has steadily deteriorated beyond recognition. The system is now characterized by:
- Chronic shortages of drugs and essential supplies and equipment
- Staff shortages due to the loss of skilled personnel to other countries (mostly to the UK and to the benefit of the NHS)
- A loss of skills, poor salaries and low morale of those struggling to support the system.
Undergraduate and post graduate health professional training is seriously weakened and is contributing to a further deterioration in the quality of health services. ZHTS aims to provide support that will benefit the system in the short as well as longer term.
