Legislators have called on government to allocate at least 15% of the 2018 national budget to the health sector and scrap off maternal fees in line with the 2001 Abuja declaration which Zimbabwe is signatory to. Calling for free maternity to every woman from first trimester check up, delivering and six weeks after birth. Free maternity care is a must, but it is not being observed because hospitals say it is their key avenue to get money as they have no other means.
