The centre provides outpatient healthcare services to a population of about 16,500. It is staffed with a part- time doctor and two nurses. About 200 patients visit the heath centre every week. There are 40-50 births per month. Access to water is limited since the nearest clean water source is 3 km away from the clinic. The project aims to dig a new borehole since the existing one is contaminated and close to the latrines.
