NORTH WEST MEC FOR HEALTH, DR MOLEFI SEFULARO, WILL OPEN THE BODIBE HEALTH CENTRE ON 4 SEPTEMBER 2001
A new health centre, which will open for 24-hours a day, will be opened in Bodibe, near Litchtenburg on Tuesday, 4 September 2001. This is what the MEC, Dr Molefi Sefularo, promised the people of Bodibe during his budget speech early this year.
Ensuring that rural people have adequate access to health facilities is one of the critical challenges that the Department of Health is grappling with now. Key amongst those challenges is to ensure that our clinics in rural areas are open 24-hours a day.
"Consistent with the need to adequately serve our rural areas, the department allocates the bulk of its resources in pursuit of this objective," said the MEC for Health, Dr Molefi Sefularo.
The new Bodibe Health Centre cost a total of R1.4 million. The construction of the centre contributed to local job creation since 85% of the workers on the project were local residents.
