The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development officially handed over two health facilities to Hoima district local government on Thursday last week at a function that was held at Buseruka sub-county headquarters.
The two multi-billion structures include Buseruka Health Center III and Kabale Health Center III both in Buseruka sub county Hoima district. The ministry constructed maternity wards,general wards,Out patients wards and staff quarters at both facilities.
Presiding over the function, Peter Lokeris, the state minister for energy and mineral development challenged the beneficiaries to put the structures into proper use and asked the ministry of health to fully equip the health facilities with enough drugs and staff to provide sufficient health services to the community around.
Lokeris says the ministry of Energy and mineral development still has a lot to do in Buseruka Sub County in Hoima district more especially improving on various infrastructures like roads, schools, among others.
“I call upon the beneficiaries to fully take control of these structures and put them to proper use. I also call on the Ministry of Health and Hoima district Local government to fully equip these health facilities with enough drugs and staff,” said Mr Lokeris.
Dr Charles Olara the director of clinical services at the ministry of health who represented the health minister expressed government’s commitment to fully equip the two health facilities with enough drugs to cater for the growing population in the Albertine region.
Honorable Pius Wakabi,Bugahya County member of parliament in which the health facilities are constructed, tasked the Ministry of Health to upgrade Buseruka Health Center III to the level of Health Center IV since the whole of Bugahya county does not have a Health Center IV.
