Liberia’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Liberia, Doctor Francis Kateh, commends the people of Kpayakolleh Town, Salayea District, Lofa County for constructing a health facility at an estimated cost of US$80,000.
Doctor Kateh, also Deputy Minister of Health, says the money was provided to the people of Kpayakolleh Town by a logging company operating in the area, in fulfillment of an agreement reached between the company and the town.
Making the disclosure following a two-week tour of Lofa County, he describes the initiative as “a huge task” intended to complement government’s intervention in the health sector of Liberia.
The CMO explains to reporters in Monrovia he was privileged to dedicate the health facility during his tour of the county when he made a stop in Kpayakolleh Town.
He says the tour covers Curran Hospital in Zorzor District, Telewoyan Hospital in Voinjama, Kolahun Health Center besides meeting with health workers in Vahun where a surgery room is currently being constructed by the residents.
According to the CMO, he assured the people of the town of government’s commitment to equip the operation room upon its completion.
The Deputy Health boss notes that the visit also extended to Foya District where a health center was constructed through the initiative of the late Representative Eugene Fallah Kparkar.
Meanwhile, Doctor Kateh assures health workers in Lofa of government’s continued support in seeking the welfare of healthcare providers across the country. Editing by Jonathan Browne
