Community Health Posts a welcome move

Community Health Centres are a welcome move in the country’s health services delivery system in as far as decentralising and decongesting district health centres.Bende health post is one of the many community health centres, which are set to be rolled out countywide.

 

This ground breaking village health centre will go a long way in assisting thousands of Nyanga villagers who previously had to access health care services 40 km from their villages.

It will also go a long way in decongesting the number of patients at Nyanga Central Hospital.

Addressing delegates at the official Opening of the first health post nationwide, Minister of Health and Child Care Dr David Parirenyatwa said the country’s health delivery system is set for a major overhaul through the inception of the community village health posts, which will ensure the majority of Zimbabweans can easily access health care.

“We are committed to fighting malaria. It is saddening to note that people are travelling long distances to access health care facilities; for example, villagers in Bende are used to travelling over 40km to access health facilities at the nearest clinic.

“The community health access points will go a long way in addressing such challenges, ensuring that villagers will quickly receive medical attention,” he said.

Over 4 000 villagers are expected to benefit from the establishment of the Bende clinic.
