Sole staffer deserts health post
Jul 9, 2014-
As a result, local residents in the remote village are left with no option other than chartering a helicopter to take patients suffering from even minor diseases to elsewhere for treatment as people in the VDC have to walk for seven days to reach Khandabari, where comparatively well-equipped hospital is located. Local people said health workers are not available even at health facilities in nearby villages. Pemba Nawa, a local, said they recently took three patients to Khandabari for treatment via chartered helicopters due to a lack of treatment in the village.
Madan Kumar Upadhyay, chief of the District Public Health Office, said he would send Singh back to duty immediately.
