REGIONAL NETWORK OF NATIONAL NURSES ORGANIZATIONS IN SOUTHERN AFRICA WITH LABOUR UNION STATUS
11 – 14 FEBRUARY 2010
PREPARED BY REGINA P. SMITH
ZIMBABWE NURSES ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT
ZINA GENERAL SECRETARY
Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA) is a vibrant nurses organization for the Republic of Zimbabwe. It was founded in 1980 and currently has a membership of about 4800 out of a possible 16000 members. Membership is voluntary
The HIV/AIDS pandemic has also taken its toll among nurses. Fortunately, the nurses are not medically boarded but they are counselled and started on ART. Support groups are also formed to help the nurses who are infected and affected. Financial support is very critical to the nurses HIV/AIDS groups but the association is failing to help meaningfully because of its current financial status.
Massive resignation of Senior Nursing staff for greener pastures affected our membership and services.
Human Resources, internal and external brain drain of health professionals is still experienced.
I Thank You
