A large participation of the inhabitants of the locality where the said center is located, was observed and expressed the satisfaction to have such a structure of care. Those residents revealed to a check by ABP that they had difficulty finding a doctor and should arrive in Gihanga in Bubanza province, or sometimes at the Bernadette Sisters, for consultation with a doctor.
They also applauded the wish of the legal representative of the Don Bethel medical center, who pleaded with the representatives of the ministry in charge of health to be on the list of structures recognized with the free care program, towards pregnant mothers and children of less than five years.
For the Provincial Doctor, Dr. Jean Claude Habiyaremye, he urged the staff of the said health center to respect medical ethics and to serve the population properly to their satisfaction.
He also promised that the Don Bethel Medical Center in Ndava will enter, from next week, in the database of the Ministry of Public Health and the Fight against AIDS.
As for Gad Nsengiyumva, legal representative of the said medical center, he invited the population to seek treatment at the Medical Center which had just been born, having qualified staff with a doctor, but also with sufficient and adequate equipment.
Many services can be found in this medical center, including medical consultation; internal medicine; emergency services; the laboratory; ultrasound; ophthalmology; minor surgery; and a pharmacy.
Mr. Nsengiyumva requests the support of the administration for the rehabilitation of the track leading to the Don Bethel medical center, water at all times and electricity, to serve the population well.
