KUALA LUMPUR: Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad, expressed his commitment to resolving the issues faced by nurses in the country, particularly concerning their salaries and welfare.

He emphasised that nurses play a vital role in ensuring the healthcare system runs smoothly for everyone and expressed his deep understanding of the various problems nurses face, which have not been resolved.

As the Health Minister, I understand and empathise with the challenges they face, including issues related to salaries, allowances, welfare and their professional duties, which have yet to be adequately addressed.
