Shifting of maternity centre demanded

CHITRAL: The residents of Drosh town have demanded shifting of the maternity and child healthcare centre from a rented house back to its own building.

Civil society activist Haji Mohammad Shafa told reporters that established in 1964 the healthcare facility had virtually been non-functional since it was shifted away from its own building three years ago.

He said the centre had been established in the home of a lady health visitor but she had not bothered to instal a signboard to show its location.

He alleged that the centre’s in-charge also ran a private clinic near the tehsil headquarters hospital during the duty hours. He claimed that other employees of the centre were drawing salaries without performing duty.
