International Nurses’ Day, marked worldwide under the motto ‘Nurses: A Voice to Lead Health for All’, celebrates a profession which is calling for better working conditions in Mozambique.
In Maputo province, health professionals are dissatisfied with the low salaries they earn, the Order of Nurses’ vice chair Salma Ismael says.
Among other complaints, Ismael, a paediatric nurse, also points out that the nurse-to-inhabitant ratio fails to meet guidelines.
According to the Order of Nurses, Maputo province currently has 759 nurses, putting the nurse-to-inhabitant ratio at one nurse to 4,150 inhabitants, against the World Health Organisation recommendation of one nurse to 3,000 inhabitants.Source: O País
