“I thank God for giving me a baby girl whom I have been praying for and especially to get a baby on Christmas day,” she said.
The district chairperson, Andrewson Charles Katebire attributed the low number of babies born in hospitals to the improved government health services.
“We have twelve health centre 111s and four health centre 1Vs in the district and they all give antenatal health care which most women use because it’s free of charge,” he said.
Katebire added that next week he will task the medical officer to give the number of deliveries in all health facilities I hope the number will triple those in mission hospitals.
“People have built confidence in government facility there is no reason to why a person can opt to pay when the free services are sometimes better than those in mission hospitals,” he said.
He added that when district gets a referral hospital majority of the private health facility will close business because people will be using government facility.
