Health and Social Services Minister Dr Kalumbi Shangula has urged his ministry staff to redouble their efforts in executing their shared mandate of providing quality health services and welfare to the citizens.

Opening his ministry's management staff workshop in Windhoek on Monday, Dr. Shangula stressed the need for improved service delivery.

While commending the achievements recorded in addressing TB and HIV/AIDS in the country, the minister feels more needs to be done.

He emphasized the importance of implementing the Performance Management System in the ministry.

The finalization of universal health coverage and procurement processes are some of the other key areas that need special attention.

In terms of the much-talked-about cancellation of the health procurement tender, Dr. Shangula says his ministry is engaged in talks with the Finance Ministry as well as the Central Procurement Board to see to it that the required health equipment is acquired.
