Shortage of Essential Medicine at Health Posts
Kudari Health Center in Kudari Village, Tila, Rural-Municipality, is facing a shortage of essential medicines for over a month. The patients of Health Post shared their frustration due to the unavailability of basic medicines like paracetamol, and electrolytes.
According to a resident of Kudari village, Lalsari Sunar, the Health Post lacks paracetamol and electrolytes, despite the announcement of the Nepal Government to provide 98 types of medicines to health posts last year. He said as the temperature keeps on dropping, coughs and colds are pretty common at this time of the year. Hence, the lack of medicine is troublesome for the locals during the plummeting temperatures.
Every day 15 to 20 patients come to the Health Post due to cold, fever, asthma, and cold-induced diarrhea. However, Health Assistant Vijay Rawal talked about his difficulty in providing adequate services to the locals. He said the requests of the Health Post to the Health Branch of the Rural Municipality to solve the problem are still unanswered. There has been a shortage of medicine in health institutions for two weeks.
According to Tila Rural Municipality Health Branch in-charge, Ganesh Shahi, the Rural Municipality is in the process of purchasing medicine. The Health Branch will deliver the medicines to the respected Health Centers soon.
