African States have been advised to invest in training health workers in a bid to provide universal health services for its citizens.
Association of Schools of Public Health in Africa (ASPHA) President Prof Adongo Philip says majority of African States have failed to invest in training health professionals hence low qualified people to treat sick population.
He said other parts of the world like Europe and Asia have high levels of health care because government has invested heavily in health sector.
He says Africa continent badly needs 4.2 million health professionals to contain Africa disease burden.
“The total lack of investment into training skilled health workers has resulted into high disease burden. This can only be addressed if African governments trains health workers to change the situation,” Adongo said.
He was speaking at the side line of 25th Anniversary of masters of public health training at Makerere University school of Public health conference under the theme:Universal health coverage in Africa:the role of public health workers in Kampala.
Adongo called for close collaboration between universities health professionals and government to address low information and disease management on the continent.
