By D. Ignatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Health Team

ROBERTSPORT, July 26 (LINA)-The head of the Grand Cape Mount County Health Team (CHT), Dr. Julius Garbo, has alarmed about the acute shortage of drugs and other medical supplies in the county.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) correspondent in the county, Dr. Garbo made the statement recently in Sinje Town, Garwula district during an Ebola Response Coordination meeting.

Dr. Garbo explained that the shortage of drugs in health facilities in the county is hampering the effective delivery of health services to citizens.

He said there was a dire need for the Ministry of Health and international health organizations operating in the country to assist health facilities in the county with drugs and logistics including vehicles to be used for utility.

Dr. Garbo said since the supply of the last consignment in April this year, the county is yet to receive another consignment of medical supplies from the health ministry.

He explained that the county has 29 clinics, two health centers and one referral hospital, the St. Timothy Government Hospital in Robertsport.

He said the county has a total of 69 nurses, 26 certified Midwives, 22 physician Assistants, two medical doctors and two Anesthetists.
