Zambia’s Health Minister Joseph Kasonde has announced that his Ministry has procured Oxygen machines for the University Teaching Hospital [UTH] which will be installed at the institution within the next three weeks.

Kasonde says the machines that got damaged could not be repaired hence the reason why the Hospital has been using Cylinders in the recent past.

He says the oxygen from cylinders is as safe as that from machines and the hospital would continue to use them during the installation period.

Kasonde has also announced that his Ministry will soon establish a health Fund that will allow for quick action when an emergency in the health sector arises.

He has since called on all stakeholders to support the Ministry to ensure better health delivery to all citizens
