Rukungiri health center 4   Rwamahwa is grappling with challenges of transport which have affected them in terms of delivering health services in its outreach centers and other health centers attached to it in Rukungiri municipality.

This was yesterday revealed by Dr.Patrick Mugisha the in-charge Rukungiri health center 4 Rwamahwa  while addressing  the Eastern division council .

He had been requested by the speaker of the  eastern division council    James Twinamatsiko who was chairing the council meeting  to give the state of health services in their division .

Dr. Patrick Mugisha said the health center 4 does not even have a motorcycle and which makes it hard for them conduct health outreaches  like immunization among others.

He added that the health center is also facing the challenge of delayed supply of medicines because as they last received medicine from national medical stores in September and yet they receive 60-100 patients every day   .

The national medical stores supplies medicine to health centers and hospitals after every two months meaning that Rukungiri health center 4 never received its supply for November.

Hon Dr. Erisa Rutahirwa the Rukungiri municipality legislator when asked about the issues,  said Rukungiri health center 4 has not been a fully functioning health centre four but the ministry of health has already assured   district leaders  that a theater will be soon constructed and  facility    will be fully equipped like other health centre 4s giving  examples of  Buhunga and Kebisoni.

The Rukungiri municipality town clerk  did not pick repeated calls to give light on issues affecting Rukungiri health centre 4.

The Rukungiri district secretary for health Mathias  Mwesigwa Rwabungumi said its is not  only  Rukungiri health centre 4  that is facing challenges but also other  health center 4s across the district because patients always run to get medical care in health center 4s leaving   the lower health centers

He added that he has already written a letter to   district health officer Rukungiri and other relevant authorities about the delayed supply of medicines
