Assembly Member for Jagluu Electoral Area in the Wa West District, Bapile Moses have bemoaned the poor access to healthcare services at Jagluu due to the lack of a health facility at community.
He said Jagluu is the Electoral Area Centre but that the community has no health facility, forcing the people to trek several kilometers to Gurungu or Wechiau to access healthcare services.
Mr Bapile, who raised the concern in an interview with Info Radio, noted that Jagluu is about 13 kilometers away from the nearest health facility at Gurungu, but that pregnant women, children and the aged at Jagluu have to travel to Gurungu to access healthcare services.
The assembly member therefore appealed to benevolent organisations to come their aid by providing the Jagluu community with a health facility to help improve access to healthcare services.
