Islands in focus: C. Java to dispatch 500 nurses to Suriname

The Central Java administration will dispatch 500 nurses to Suriname to meet the increasing demand for medical professionals in several of the country’s hospitals.

Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo said the dispatch of the medical workers was at the request of the Suriname government.

“What they have specifically requested are nurses with kidney failure treatment skills. This is among the number of agreements the Central Java administration and the Suriname government has formed,” he said in Semarang on Monday.

To meet the demand, the governor said, the provincial administration would recruit new graduates from several nursing academies in Central Java.

“Apart from medical workers, Suriname is also in need of accounting and banking specialists,” said Ganjar.
