If We Don’t Look At The Doctor’s Strike As National Crisis, We Shall Not Solve The Issue – Mulumba Moses

Mulumba Moses, director at Center For health, human rights and development has cautioned government about the ongoing doctors strike.

He says if the strike is not looked at as a national crisis, then the issue will never be solved. According to him, the doctors laying their tools down is a national problem and something should be done as soon as possible.

He queried the whereabouts of technical people in the health sector. He emphasized that this is the time they should be reassuring doctors on a way forward.

“The question is in the action of priorities. There would not be any promises from the president if what doctors are asking for is too much. Where are the technical people from the Ministry of Health? This is the time where they should be in the media reassuring us and the medical workers on what steps are being taken.The Ministry’s silence is suspect,” he said.

Doctors have put their tools down due to less pay from the government. However, officials in the ministry of health have been quiet about this which is fishy.

Nurses have been complaining that they are overwhelmed with patients due to the absence of doctors. It is not the first time doctors are putting down their tools, but what does this mean?

The president is always promising to work on the salaries of doctors but all in vain. Mulumba while on the NBS morning breeze said doctors are not missionaries.

“Problem is we have inherited a colonial thinking that doctors are like missionaries and work as such. However in a liberalised economy, that cannot work.”
