650 health posts construction date set
Government will this month launch the construction of 6 hundred and 50 health posts across the country.
Health Deputy Christopher Mulenga says the construction of the health posts will be accompanied by the procurement of equipment and facilities such as solar panels.
Hector Simfukwe reports from Central Province that, Mr. Mulenga says this will reduce the cases of people travelling long distances to seek health care services.
He says government also wants to turn all provincial hospitals into teaching hospitals.
Mr. Mulenga says this will help train the much needed human resource to man the health posts.
Government is this month expecting to receive 2- hundred and 2 ambulances to be distributed to health centres.
