Zambia: Enhance Health Sector Integrity, Says TIZ

TRANSPARENCY International Zambia (TIZ) has urged health personnel in the country to exercise integrity and transparency in their profession for good service delivery.

TIZ president Lee Habasonda said the misuse of public resources meant for social spending has continued to result in poor service delivery in the health sector because of lack of integrity and transparency among health staff.

"This has reflected in the health sector where some trained health personnel are involved in corrupt activities such as stealing drugs and inffectiveness which has, however, contributed to the loss of human life," he said. Mr Habasonde said this during a schedule for the experience sharing meeting with health staff from Kalomo, Kitwe and Solwezi Districts in Ndola yesterday.
