The Minister of Health and Child Care, Doctor Obadiah Moyo has challenged the newly appointed Natpharm board to scale up operations and stock the pharmaceutical warehouse above the 65 percent which they are currently at.
The Minister said this in the capital today at a workshop held at Holiday Inn, before adding that the national was putting all hopes on the new board to do their best in restocking the pharmaceutical warehouse as the stocks were currently as from what he expected.
“The challenge which is there for you is to make sure that you improve our stocks,” said Dr Moyo.
“We have moved from 58 percent to 65 percent without the board, now that we have a board in place, we hope to be able to reach 100 percent. This will means that all our district hospitals, and all our rural health institutions will be fully stocked,” said Dr Moyo.
Members of the new board include Dr Billy Rigava as the chairman, Gerald Gava, Dr Harunavamwe Chifamba, Dr Johnson Shonhe and Advocate Rachel Chibaya .
The new members replace the Dr George Washaya-led board, which was dissolved by Dr Moyo sometime last year.
