ZUNO secretary general Gray Michelo says as stakeholders go for consultations next month, the organization is hopeful that the challenge will be tabled as it continues to be a thorn for the nurses and midwives.

Mr Michelo said the conditions of nurses and midwives were still poor and hence the need for the consultations on the improvement of the conditions that would commence next month.

On settling allowances, Mr Michelo said nurses and midwives sent to rural areas often got the money after a long time, which made it hard for new nurses and mid wives to settle and work.

Mr Michelo said government should look into the plight of nurses and midwives posted to remote areas for often times, they felt neglected by their own government.

He said government should endevour to motivate civil servants such as nurses and midwives as it had been a concern for many years.
