    Saddened to witness the continued lack of graduates to enter the health care field.

    That lack of interest in health care trainees and speciialized specialist is primarily due to lack of exposure of that field, in the schools and community.

    Hence, 99.9% of its current care takers, practioners and specialist alike are all foriegn. That sneeds to change to a significant degree.

    This is an area that continue to be of concern for many locals as it appear a neglected area of our country’s health by the rulung parties and class.

    It is the responsibility of government to take care of its country, and citizens economic, professional and medical health.

    Dependency upon complete external medical expertise must become a practice of the past.

    Current and all other political parties, do take note.
