Health Minister Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete says criticizing and making remarks to nurses and doctors does not help the services provided by the Health Ministry.

He says health officials need to be appreciated as they work in a risky environment.

Weeks into his new role as the Health Minister, Dr Waqainabete says health officials around the country deserve respect.

“You know i would like the nation to recognize and appreciate the work that has been done and the fact that we need to enhance and move forward.”

The Minister notes that at times the health sector has been criticized on social media with negative comments on services provided at various hospitals.

Dr Waqainabete says while these incidents are expected, the medical staff, nurses and doctors try within their means and resources to continue to provide the best medical assistance.
