A primary health care center in Kaduru Bwari, a suburb of Abuja, serves about 6,000 locals but lacks the needed equipment to effectively manage the population.
During a monitoring tour of the community, Tracka assessed the health facility and discovered that it was left to deteriorate despite its central value of serving such a huge number of patients.
“We observed that the facility lacks the following equipment: electricity, water, a perimeter fence and other medical equipment.” Tracka tweeted.
Residents of the community, according to Tracka bemoaned the inaccessibility to quality health care. According to findings, only eight beds were available in the facility that serves 6,000 locals.
A resident of the community, simply identified as Elizabeth told Tracka how the community wrote a petition in 2015, but failed to attract the government’s attention.
