Kirora, 25 October 2010 – The Emahmime Health Center in Kirora sub-zone is striving to render efficient service to the local inhabitants, stated Mr. Bereket Habtetsion, head of the Health Ministry’s branch in the sub-zone.
He told ERINA that the center is providing service focusing on vaccination of children under the age of 5, pre-and post-delivery care, mother and child vaccination, distribution of Vitamin A and others, as well as voluntary blood and tuberculosis testing, among others.
Mr. Bereket further indicated that the Ministry, in collaboration with partners, is exerting relentless efforts to enable pregnant mothers give birth in health institutions. As a result, the number of pregnant mothers making medical checkup in the health center is increasing, which in turn contributed to the growing number of pregnant mothers giving birth in the center.
Moreover, he stated that the spread of malaria infection is declining as a result of the preemptive measures taken. Noting that about 3.000 patients received medical treatment in the center over the past 6 months, Mr. Bereket said that the installation of solar-energy generating device in the health center is playing major role in facilitating its activities.
The Emahmime Health Center is providing service to the inhabitants of Halibet, Arag, Zero, Felket, Fah, Deb’at, Hishkib, Shakat, Asrai and Ela-Tsaeda.
