Employ Health Surveillance Recruited Under Global Fund, Ombudsman Orders Min. of Health
The office of ombudsman has ordered the ministry of Health to permanently employ all Health Surveillance Assistants which were recruited under global funding in 2007.
The determination follows a complaint which the HSAs lodged to the office accusing the ministry of keeping them in the dark regarding their employment status since their contract was terminated.
Ombudsman Martha Chizuma has also ordered the Ministry to pay gratuities to those who died while waiting for justice and payback salary deductions by the 28th of February next year.
