Doctors Association challenge Malabag’s decision

This was in relation to the restoration of normal governance at Western Highlands Provincial Health Authority of which NDA stated its wish to challenge the reinstatement of the Board of WHPHA.

The decision was taken after two independent inquiries exhaustively considered the complaints and claims of some staff members; based on the outcomes of those investigations and on the recommendations of the WHPHA Independent Caretaker Board, which served for six months; and was implemented only after the Caretaker Board’s recommendations were endorsed by the National Executive Council.
