​New health centre to serve over 4000 people

​The recently-opened Wireh Health Centre in Southern Highlands will serve more than four thousand people in the Wiru LLG.

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill witnessed the official opening of the health centre in the South Wiru Local Level Government (LLG) of Ialibu Pangia District on Saturday, May 6.

Funded by the Department of Health, the Centre was officially opened by the Secretary for Health, Pascoe Kase, in the presence of thousands of people who came from all over Ialibu Pangia.

PM O’Neill said the health policy that the Government has implemented is very important and must reach out to the rural areas.

“We will continue to build more health centres throughout the country and ensure our majority of population in rural areas have access to better health care,” said the PM.

Secretary Kase and the National Gaming Control Board CEO, Ms Imelda Agon, accompanied the PM on the trip.

NGCB was there to present an ambulance in Ialibu, which it has donated.
