Area health centre planned for Isabel province


AN additional Area Health Centre (AHC) for Isabel province is being planned by the Togamae Private Emergency Clinic.

Dr Pedical Togamae, owner of the Togamae Private Emergency Clinic, said, “After launching this Emergency clinic, by end of this year we should open another AHC at our rural community near Buala in Isabel province.

“Aim is to open this new clinic here to generate finance to facilitate the construction and building materials while community’s support will come in a form building.”

He said the clinic will be registered under AHC of Buala because it will cover villages on the highlands and seaside residents.

“Main supplies of medicine will be from the National Referral Hospital, and this is free services, and only Registered Nurse employed there will be paid by us,” Togamae said.

Togamae said this will not cost the Isabel AHC and the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS).

He said the clinic will be managed by the Togamae Private Emergency Clinic, and government will supply drugs and provide other medical equipment.

Togamae said dialogue is currently being sought with the provincial authorities of Isabel.
