Govt serious about reforming health sector: Minister of State Aryal
WALING, SYANGJA: Minister of State for Health and Population, Padma Kumari Aryal, has said that the government has realised the challenges faced by people in receiving health care facilities.
Speaking at a press meet here today, the Minister of State said, shortage of human resources due to various reasons, mainly in rural areas, had hampered health service delivery.
She stated that the government was serious about addressing anomalies gripping the domestic health sector.
Likewise, Aryal asserted that medical employees should compulsorily reach their assigned stations, otherwise they should clear the way so that others could have the opportunity to provide service. "The ministry is preparing to implement this provision strictly."
According to the state minister, discussions were on to formulate a rule banning any employee from staying in Kathmandu valley for more than five years.
Similarly, Aryal went on to mention that though the government agreed on some of the demands put forth by Dr Govinda KC, it could not concur with the demand to prohibit opening of new medical colleges, while adding that the issues of Gangamaya had links with the conflict and hence were complex and sensitive.
