MAKAMU wa Rais Dk. Mohammed Gharib Bilal, amewataka wataalam wa afya kutumia teknolojia ya mawasiliano katika kusambaza haraka taarifa za magonjwa kwa wananchi ili kuzuia maambukizi au kutoa tiba mahsusi kwa wakati muafaka pindi ugonjwa unapoibuka.



Dk. Bilal alitoa rai hiyo jijini Dar es Salaam alipokuwa akifungua Mkutano Mkuu wa 14 wa  Muungano wa Wataalam wa Watoa Taarifa za afya Afrika (AHILA), na kueleza kuwa kufanya hivyo kutasaidia usambazaji haraka wa taarifa muhimu.



"Kupeana taarifa za mara kwa mara za afya na ujuzi miongoni mwa wadau kama wagonjwa, wahudumu wa afya, watoa huduma, watunga sera, watafiti na mashirika ya fedha ni muhimu sana katika kuboresha huduma za afya nchini. Kuimarisha usambazaji wa taarifa katika sekta hii kutaleta matokeo chanya katika kukabiliana na magonjwa kama Malaria na Ukimwi ambayo bado yanatusumbua sana," alisema.

Alisema kumekuwa na uhitaji mkubwa wa taarifa za afya hasa maeneo ya vijijini na kwamba Tehama itarahisisha kusambaza taarifa hizo ikiwamo namna wananchi wanaweza kujikinga na magonjwa.

Rais wa Ahila, Nasra Gathoni, alisema katika mkutano huo, watajadiliana kwa kina namna watakavyotumia fursa ya ukuaji wa Tehama katika kushughulikia changamoto zinazoikabili sekta ya afya.

Alisema kwa kutumia Tehama taarifa za afya zitawafikia wananchi wengi kwa wakati mmoja na pia wataalamu wa sekta hiyo wanaweza kubadilishana ujuzi kwa urahisi.

Naye Naibu Waziri wa Afya, Janeth Mbene, alisema kwa kutambua changamoto zinazoikabili sekta ya serikali imeanzisha idara ya kukusanya taarifa mbalimbali za magonjwa na kuzisambaza.

Aliwashauri pia watafiti kutumia Tehama kusambaza taarifa zao kwa wadau hasa wananchi wa maeneo ya vijijini.

NA ELIZABETH JOHN 

MSANII wa muziki wa kizazi kipya nchini, Sunday Mangu ‘Linex’ amesema kuwa hana sababu ya yeye kutumia kilevi chochote kile kama madawa ya kulevya na bangi kwani haoni kama vinaweza kumsaidia katika muziki wake.

Akinamama nchini wana wajibu wa kujiepusha na makundi ambayo ndio adui mkubwa  katika harakati za maendeleo na Kisiasa hasa wakati huu wa Taifa likikaribia kuelekea katika uchaguzi Mkuu ujao wa mwaka 2015.

Mke wa Makamu wa Pili wa Rais wa Zanzibar Mama Asha Suleiman Iddi alisema hayo wakati akilifungua Baraza Kuu la Umoja wa Wanawake Tanzania  (UWT) Jimbo la Magomeni linalofanyika katika ukumbi wa Ofisi ya Tawi la CCM Nyerere Wilaya ya Mjini Zanzibar.

Mama Asha alisema njia pekee ya kufikia maendeleo hayo ni kwa akina mama hao pamoja na wananchi wote kufanya kazi zao kwa bidii na maarifa ili kufikia malengo wanayojipangia kuyatekeleza.

Alisema kamwe hakutakuwa na miujiza itakayoletwa na baadhi ya watu kwa kutaka kufanikisha maslahi yao binafsi kupitia udanganyifu wanauelekeza kwa  wananchi hasa wanawake ili kufikia azma yao.

Mama Asha alifahamisha kwamba CCM ndio chama pekee Nchini Tanzania chenye uwezo wa kuwaletea maendeleo wananchi kutokana na sera zake zenye uwezo wa kutekelezeka wakati wote.

Aliwatahadharisha akina mama hao kuwa na tahadhari  na watu waliowahi kuneemeka na Serikali zilizopo madarakani ambao wakati huu wamekuwa wakizipinga kwa vile wako nje ya utumishi.

Alieleza kwamba ushawishi wa watu hao ulifikia hatua ya kuwataka watu wawe vilema kwa sababu tu ya uchu wao wa madaraka ya nchi hii bila ya kujali kuwa vitendo vyao hivyo vina muekeo wa kujenga chuki za maisha ndani ya jamii.

Katika kuunga mkono vikundi vya kiuchumi na ushirika vya akina mama hao wa Jimbo la Magomeni Mama Asha alisema kupitia Umoja wao wa Wake wa Wawakilishi na Wabunge wa CCM Zanzibar wataangalia uwezekano wa kusaidia akina mama hao.

Aliuomba uongozi wa Umoja wa Wanawake Tanzania { UWT } Jimbo la Magomeni kuviorodhesha vikundi hivyo pamoja na muongozo wa shughuli wanazozifanya akina mama hao ili vipatiwe msaada unastahiki kutokana na kazi zao.

Mapema akitoa taarifa fupi ya Umoja wa Wanawake Tanzania Jimbo la Magomeni Katibu wa UWT Jimbo hilo Bibi Maimuna Bara bara alisema akina mama wa Jimbo hilo wako imara kuisubiri Katiba iliyopendekezwa na Bunge la Katiba kwa ajili ya kuipigia kura ya ndio wakati ukiwadia.

Bibi Maimuna alisema akina Mama hao wamewapongeza Wajumbe wa Bunge Maalum la Katiba kwa uwamuzi wao wa kupendekeza Katiba inayotoa fursa sawa ya hamsini kwa hamsini kijinsia kwenye nafasi za uongozi pamoja na maamuzi ya Taifa.
Alisema katika kukabiliana na ukali wa kimaisha akina mama wa Jimbo hilo tayari wameshaanzisha vikundi 11 vya kuweka na kukopa sambamba pia na kuanzisha vikundi vya vikoba.

Hata hivyo Bibi Maimuna alieleza kwamba zipo changa moto zilizojitokeza katika vikundi vyao akizitaja kuwa ni pamoja na ufinyu wa elimu kwa wana vikundi, vitendea kazi kama Kompyuta pamoja na ukosefu wa fedha za kuendeshea miradi yao.
