He stressed the importance of the ambulance in facilitating the transfer of patients to other medical facilities within the county. Dr. Gono acknowledged the challenges faced by the health center, including limited manpower and the need for increased incentives for healthcare workers.
He also highlighted the growing population in the district, calling for government attention and upgrades to transform the health center into a hospital. In conclusion, the donation of the ambulance by Speaker Bohfal Chambers to the Pleebo Health Center is seen as a significant contribution to improving healthcare services in Pleebo Sodoken district.
