VILLAGERS from Catchment Communities of Gwaunaoa Clinic in the west Kwara’ae electorate are complaining over the unreliability and shortage of drugs at the clinic.
Report reaching Solomon Star Auki said the shortage of medicines at the clinic has become a usual experience which is causing people to become frustrated.
It stated that just recently, sick patients visiting the clinic have not been given their proper medication, due to the shortage of drugs at the stock.
Gwaunaoa Clinic maintenance and development supervisor, Nathaniel Maegwari confirmed that villagers have been complaining of the shortage of drugs at the clinic.
“The fickleness of drug supplies at the clinic even forced villagers to be reluctant from attending weekly maintenance work at the clinic.
“This has now become an issue at the clinic and sick patients have been affected,” Maegwari said.
However, he calls on the government to redirect its focus more on supplying drugs to rural health centres in the country rather than concentrating on COVID 19 situation in the country.
