Government has advertised the recruitment of 3, 000 health workers across the country, just a year after recruiting more than 11, 000 health workers across the board.

But Mr. Kanyika says the health sector has over the years been compromised due to lack of transparency in the recruitment process of health workers, hence the need to have a more transparent system of employing health personnel in the civil service.

Mr Kanyika said enhancing transparency in the recruitment process of the health workers would help enhance the quality of health services in the sector and curb unprofessionalism.

He said Government should ensure that stakeholders were consulted to avoid recruiting unqualified health workers in all sectors.

Mr. Kanyika said the recruitment would not only benefit 3000 health workers but more as it was accompanied by the upgrading of the health workers already in the service.

He has since commended Government for pushing the recruitment process at district level, adding that it was from the districts that it would be able to know which facility lacked health personnel.
