Government has disclosed that it will be sponsoring four post graduate students in Dental Surgery and one post-graduate in maxilla-facial Surgery in the year 2014.

Director Disease Surveillance, Control and Research in the Ministry of Health Elizabeth Chizema has told Qfm News that this is part of government’s plan of ensuring that it resolves the current challenges faced with shortage of Human resource in the health sector that cuts across all categories in the health system.

Dr. Chizema notes that the Ministry of Health will in 2014 also put aside funds for four positions for post-graduate studies wherever available but most preferably within the African region.

Dr. Chizema has also reiterated government’s commitment through the Ministry of Health to continue supporting quality oral health services in the country through the promotion and implementation of the three Cs which are Clean, Caring and Competence.
