RESIDENTS OF NYUNDO SUB COUNTY IN KISORO DEMAND FOR A HEALTH WORKER
By Libino Byamukama
Residents of Nyundo Sub County, Kisoro district further petitioned the district health officer Dr. Steven Nsabiyumva to send a health worker to Rugarambiro Aid Post because patients are facing a difficult time walking long distances to Bukimbiri HC III.
Nyundo Sub County Chief Christine Ntakirutimana said people are suffering because the health post no longer has a health worker which forces many to walk long distances when they are sick.
Dr. Steven Nsabiyumva, the district health officer said the position of health assistant is being phased out by the Government adding that a more qualified staff will soon be posted to Rugarambiro aid post.
Nyundo Sub County District Councilor Bernadette Tumwikirize thanked the district for considering the need for a health worker at the aid post and urged communities to maintain good hygiene and sanitation.
