Buvusi Health Centre

MP condemns closure of health centre

Shadow Minister for Health and HIV/AIDS, Joseph Yopyyopy, says the recent closure of Buvusi Health Centre in West New Britain Province by the Department of Health is totally irresponsible and a crime against humanity.

Yopyyopy, in a statement, described the closure as “an act of genocide”, saying withdrawing vital health services there means the Government is simply killing is own citizens.

“Resorting to closure of the health centre will simply compound the prevailing state of deteriorating services and allow our people to die of preventable diseases,” he stressed.
