Health services restored for 75,000 people

Two health centres have recently opened in Rivercess and Margibi counties to provide basic health services for some 75,000 people, UNICEF said. Both centres, part of a UNICEF-supported programme for revitalising health services, are equipped with a generator, water tower, laboratory, pharmacy and operating room. They will help reduce infant and maternal mortality rates, and restore access to basic health care for the local populations, UNICEF said.
