The Failing Health of the Kujang Medical Centre

Community Correspondent Anupama Sathy reports on the failing health of the Kujang Block Community Health Centre which has put the lives of prospective patients in grave danger. Despite being upgraded from Primary Health Centre to a Community Health Centre in 2007, the facilities of here have not improved. There is not even a delivery room here. All patients who are brought in a serious condition are promptly packed up and sent to health centres in Erasma or Balikuda 60 and 30 Km away. This, in the heartland of a country that is fast becoming popular for medical tourism. An article in the Washington Times says: "Indian medical professionals have achieved world-class status and practice using many of the most advanced techniques in a network of privately run hospitals and associated medical institutes in India." If only some of these superb facilities were extended to the vast majority of the country... Though that dream may take some time to be realised, you can help improve the condition of this medical centre. Call to Action: Please call Mr Bijay Kumar Sahoo, the Chief District Medical Officer on 09437023651 and ask him to ensure that the CHC at Kujang Block is repaired immediately.
