DMO inspects health facilities

ITANAGAR, Jul 14: Capital Complex DMO Dr Mandip Perme urged medical officers (MO) and health workers to be diligent and regular in their duties, saying that “performance of a health facility improves when its staffers are available for providing the health services.”
Headed by Dr Perme, a monitoring team from the newly-created Capital Complex District Health Society on Friday visited the various health facilities (sub-centres) under its jurisdiction.
The team reviewed the performances of the health facilities, and the implementation of various health programmes.
Interacting with the MO in charge of the Karsingsa UPHC, Dr Perme advised the MO to place the requirements of the health facility to improve the mother and child health service delivery.
He also interacted with health wellness officers, ASHAs, nurses and other health officials.
Prince Jacob, the state programme officer of JHPIEGO, an international non-profit health organization affiliated to the Johns Hopkins University, USA, highlighted the importance of activities under the health and wellness centres (HWC).
He shared the HWC checklist and advised the staffers to prepare the HWC documents and records to ensure delivery of comprehensive primary healthcare.
Besides the Karsingsa UPHC, the team visited the sub-centres in Borum, Nirjuli, PTC Banderdewa, Pichola and Durpang. (DIPRO)
