Ruling and opposition MPs who are medical professionals yesterday (18) agreed to intervene in national health issues.
The agreement came at a meeting they had together with the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) at the parliamentary complex.
Focus of the one-hour long discussion was on remedial measures for the brain drain of doctors and the resultant issues in the health sector.
