WHO country representative, Olusegan Babaniyi, has noted that the country is currently facing a shortage of human resource for health in both rural and urban areas compounded by inequitable distribution of existing health workers.


He was speaking after touring Lusaka Appex Medical University in (LAMU) in Lusaka yesterday.


Dr Babaniyi has, however, expressed happiness that the Ministry of Health has given high priority to address the human resource crisis that the country is facing.
