MONROVIA, Dec. 2 (LINA) -The Officer- in-Charge (OIC) at the Barnerville Health Center has appealed to government and donors to address shortage of drugs and other medical equipment at the facility.

 OIC Marlly Biah said the clinic has not been supplied drugs since October, creating a shortage of medication for the more than 300 patients that visit the center daily.

She told the Liberia News Agency Monday that the health center also lacks an ambulance to refer patients to bigger health facilities as well as laboratory equipment for better diagnoses of patients.

She said the government should buttress the effort of the health center’s donor, African Humanitarian Action (AHA) by providing the health center with adequate drugs and medical supplies.

AHA, a non- governmental organization, provides the Barnersville Health Center with some drugs, 50 gallons of fuel monthly, and incentives to Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, mid wives and the Laboratory Technician.

The Barnersville Health Center which was established 1976 is catering for three large communities - Barnersville, Dixville and Johnsonville.
 

It has a total of 39 staff, 17 of which are professional health workers and the rest administrative and support staff.
