Nepali people will not have to wonder from place to place for health service
Itahari, July 18: Minister for Health and Population Khagaraj Adhikari has said that overcoming the problems faced by Nepal's health sector would be difficult without bringing into use the new technologies produced in the world.
Inaugurating the Digital Radiography Machine at the BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences in Dharan, today, Minister Adhikari said the government had already taken steps to introduce health services to all the villages in the country. "The Nepali people will soon be relieved of the necessity to wonder from place to place in search of health service," he said.
Minister Adhikari said the Health Ministry had purchased the DR Machine at the cost of Rs 50 million for the Institute. He said the government has implemented the maternal health programmes across the country, adding the government itself was committed for its effective enforcement.
The Health Minister said that the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) was sifting through the documents of the Institute to investigate the allegations into corruption and lack of quality health services.
Institute's Vice Chancellor Prof Dr BP Das said the maternity health programme could not be conducted due to the excessive service pressure while tending to overflowing number of pregnant women at the Academy.
