Public health needs urgent assistance

There have been worrying reports of patient deaths in public hospitals.

This is a symptom of a crisis in the public health sector and this needs to be dealt with expeditiously.

Health, education, and security need support from both the public and the government.

It is, therefore, unfortunate that only security seems to be reasonably well funded and is better equipped.

The government needs to correct this to avoid deaths. Let it engage all health stakeholders to address this crisis.
