The establishment of the School of Medical and Health Sciences at Great Zimbabwe University is important in order to address the critical shortage of medical specialists in the country. Among other novelties, the school will be backed by a strong department of pharmaceutical studies that will enable students to manufacture medicines that work. A Centre for the study of herbal and traditional medicines and indigenous knowledge systems will also be established at the School.
