The newly-formed Medical and Dental Private Practioners of Zimbabwe Association (MDPPZA) is spreading its wings as it tries to reach all corners of the country in its endeavour to integrate health services in the country.
The association’s president Johannes Marisa (pictured) told Standard Style that they have put in place mechanisms to reach out to other practioners in all four corners of the country.
“We are a few months old, but we are happy with what is happening as medical practioners are inquiring about the association,” Marisa said.
“We are making efforts to reach out to all medical practioners who are into private practice to register with us and be part of this association, which seeks to improve and advocate for their welfare as well as mobilise resources for victims of natural disasters thereby complementing council, government or any other related organisation’s efforts.”
Marisa, who runs a number of clinics under the West View Group, said the association, which is working in Zimbabwe at the moment would in future consider casting its wings across the continent.
“Our area of operation is Zimbabwe, but we are capable of expanding beyond borders as we try to link up with fellow practioners, subject to identification of the local authority, thereof,” he said.
MDPPZA was formed in July this year and will soon open branches in various parts of the country.
