The City Council has embarked on an exercise to upgrade the status of its clinics in the capital’s high density suburbs by renovating and installing state of the art equipment.

 

Harare City Council Director for Health Services Dr Stanley Mungofa said the exercise’s main aim is to see an improvement in the city council’s health delivery system and the target is to renovate and install state of the art equipment at each and every council clinic.

 

“We want to improve health delivery and we are installing state of the art equipment in our clinics.

 

We are renovating the clinics one at a time and we started with budiriro clinic, now we are at Edith Opperman and from here we are moving to Rujeko clinic in Dzivarasekwa,”said Dr.Mungofa.

 

Edith Opperman Maternity Home in Mbare is currently closed for renovations and the exercise is going to bring a new look to the maternity home which was established in 1918.

 

Under this exercise the City Council is expected to install incinerators which will burn medical waste at the clinics rather than transport the waste to be burnt elsewhere.
