Primarily an out-patient clinic, the Health Center also includes an in-patient section, maternal and child health services, antenatal clinics, deliveries, post-natal care, school medical clinics, home visits, dental and family planning help, and a government policy called ‘Promotion of Healthy Island Concept.’ Please also pray for the staff including two nursing officers and seven Community Health Workers.
