BAGLUNG, June 8: A birthing centre has come into operation at the health post in Pala of Kathekhola rural municipality-1, Baglung district.
The centre was established at the well-equipped new building of the health post completed recently. The health post building was constructed at the cost of Rs. 16.2 million under the multi-year program of the Government of Nepal.
Chair of the rural municipality Amar Thapa inaugurated the building and its services at a program organized here on Friday. On the occasion Chair Thapa expressed the confidence that the building would be helpful in making health services accessible to every citizen.
