Health Services

The Department of Health is headed by the District Health Officer whose mandate is guided by the District 5 Year Strategic Plan that focuses on the achievement of equity through increased access to Minimum Health Care Package (MHCP), Quality care, efficiency accountability and transparency. 

 

The overall goal of the sector is to provide good quality services to the people of Alebtong district so as to make them attain good standards of health in order to live a healthy and reproductive life.  The sector objective is to reduce morbidity and mortality from the major causes of ill health and premature health and disparities therein”. Alebtong district has 18 Health Units of different categories. Some of them are Government owned while others are owned by Non -Government Organizations. The distribution is fair, but some of them lack the basic equipment to offer reasonable services. Many rural units require rehabilitation and equipping. Besides diseases, poor nutrition has contributed to worrying situation. Because of cross cutting nature of health issues, there is need for an integrated approach to health.

 

There are various NGOs both Local and International that are involved in AIDS prevention and control in the district. Such activities include blood screening and counselling, medical treatment, home care, pastoral education, health education, AIDS research and orphan support.
