Shillong, July 21: The Bakdil-run Babadam PHC has set an example by its effort to reduce malaria infection, increase institutional deliveries by 90% & 100% immunisation for children in the block.
Chief Minister Conard Sangma visited the dispensary on Wednesday and interacted with the medical staff and lauded them for their ceaseless efforts to provide health care to the people of the region.
He termed Babadam PHC as an exemplary story of transformation. Previously, the PHC was short staffed, suffered power outages and water shortage which affected its functioning and performance.
The PHC is considered one of the best, supporting over 47 villages in the area.
The PHC is a successful PPP model undertaken by BAKDIL.
The chief minster assured the assistance of the government to further improve the functioning of the PHC and the demand of the PHC for funds for boundary wall and the construction of a conference hall.
The North Tura MLA, Thomas A Sangma, who accompanied the chief minister during his visit, informed that the PHC will soon be getting a new ambulance to better serve the people of the area.
