BHAJANI (KAILALI), Feb 29: The setting up of an Infectious Disease Research Center has gained momentum in Sudurpaschim Province. 

In this connection, preparations have been stepped up to complete the construction of the first phase of the structure this year. 

At a time when the federal government was bringing into operation the Infectious Disease Research Center in Doti, the provincial government had decided to establish a province-level center in Tikapur, Kailali. 

The building construction started in 2078 BS under the Ministry of Social Development of the province. The province has planned to complete the remaining tasks of the building with an investment of Rs 20 million this year and take ahead the process to bring it into operation. 

An engineer at the ministry, Homraj Timilsina, said that a letter has already been sent to the contractor company selected for the construction. "The ministry will sign an agreement with the company to complete construction works in the current fiscal year," he said. 

Secretary at the ministry, Ganesh Singh, said the necessary process of operating the Infectious Disease Research Center would be forwarded after the completion of the physical structure. "The Center is an important structure for the province. It has been viewed with importance," he said, adding a new plan would be prepared in the new fiscal year. 

He expressed the belief that the Center would take the health sector of the province to a new height. It is believed that the Center being constructed on the premises of Tikapur Hospital will also help in upgrading the hospital.
