Dr Bundu-Kamara noted that there are bright students who will want to opt for the sciences but lack the required support to do science subjects; therefore, he said, it would be wise for Government through the Education Ministry to encourage students offering science subjects and to provide incentives for those studying medicine and allied health sciences.
He touched on the engineering aspect, which is also part of science technology, noting that students in the sciences will not be able to effectively carry out their duties without the appropriate technology needed in modern day medicine.
In short, the Health Service Commission (HSC) Chairman is calling on government to pay more attention to students offering engineering, medicine and allied health sciences, as without a solid foundation in science and technology, development will be a difficult task.
With regards to the progress of the Commission, Dr Alpha Bundu-Kamara said with dedication and commitment the Commission has gradually settled down and on course to implement its mandate.
He furthered that the main thrust is to build a well-qualified workforce that will be utilised by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation in meeting its service delivery objective.
To achieve this, the HSC will rely on established and accredited health training institutions to produce good quality professionals who will be dedicated and committed to duty.
Dr Bundu-Kamara noted that the HSC will ensure that these institutions are adequately monitored and supervised in order that they operate within the rules and regulations of health professional training.
In relation to recruitment of health professionals, approval has been granted to the Ministry of Health by Government to recruit a good number of nurses to be deployed in the various health facilities countrywide, and this will be carried out in the regions through the HSC and its partner agencies.
