My name is Isaac (Ike) Mukansi born in Sophia Town and Bread in Soweto. Togehter with my wife Mokgaeji Elizabeth Mashaba Mukansi, we have raised a businessman son and 3 magnificent girl doctors. We currently witness qualified healthcare professionals who face an alarming lack of job opportunities in our local government. The situation is dire; thousands of nurses and doctors graduate every year only to find that there are no jobs available for them. This is not only a waste of their skill but a significant loss for our communities that desperately need their services. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), there will be a global shortage of 18 million health workers by 2030 if current trends continue. Yet here we are, with qualified healthcare professionals unable to find employement in their field.

It's time for our government to take action.

We must ensure that all graduated nurses and doctors can find jobs where they can put their skill into practice, serve our communities and contribute positively towards public health. We call on local government officials responsible for healthcare employement policies to recognise the issue's urgency and take immediate steps towards creating more job opportunities for graduated nurses and doctors.

Help us get a million signs as this petition can change the lives of qualified health workers fair and prioritise the health of South Africans.

I therefore make the following recomendations to the government, our government, to reach an amicable settlement of the dispute.

Utilize internal aid: The government can seek financial assistance from international organizations and countries to create employment opportunities for healthcare professionals. This can be done through grants, loans or partnerships with other countries.

Increase healthcare budget: The government can allocate a larger portion of it's budget towards the healthcare sector, which can help in creating more job opportunities for unemployed healthcare professionals.

Incourage enterpreneurship: The government can provide support and incentives for unemployed healthcare professionals to start their own businesses. This cannot only create job opportunities but also contribute to the health sector.

Encourage volunteer work: The government can advise unemployed healthcare professionals to volunteer in healthcare facilities and in return compensate them with incentives or financially. This can help reduce the burden in the healthcare system.
