KABALE: The Ministry of health on Wednesday delivered a consignment of medical equipment to hospitals and various health facilities in Kabale district.
The equipment was delivered by the Kabale Woman member of parliament Hon Catherine Atwakiire Ndamira to authorities in the district at the district headquarters.
The consignment included 60 beds, 34 mattresses, 60 bedsheets and 60 blankets.
While handing over equipment to the district authorities, Hon Catherine Ndamira said the development intends to reduce congestion at Kabale regional referral hospital.
She added that the equipment will enable health center IV’s, III’s and II’s in hard-to-reach areas to extend services to the community without laboring to seek for medical services at Kabale regional referral hospital.
While receiving the equipment, the Kabale district health officer Dr. Gilbert Arineitwe Mateeka, the District LCV chairman Nelson Nshangabasheija and the Kabale Resident District Commissioner, Godfrey Nyakahuma, commended the legislator for tireless efforts to lobby for the district. They said that they are optimistic that the equipment will boost health services in the district.
They also warmed in charges at various health facilities against selling government equipment and urged them to execute their work.
