(lbsonline/Liberia)-In an effort to decentralize the health care delivery of the country, the Liberian government has dedicated the first clinic ever in Moweh statutory district, Riverces County. 

The clinic which is situated in Boe-gee-zay town was constructed by government and its partners, and is now providing services to citizens of Moweh.

The officer in charge of the Rivercess County health team Dr. William Smith said: “The construction of the clinic is a significant boost to the health sector of the county as its construction comes at a time when the people of Moweh are in dire need of health facilities”.

Dr. Smith puts the cost of the project  as more than US$ 50,000.

“The construction of this clinic will also help to reduce the health problems faced by citizens and other residents of Moweh since the establishment of the district”, he added.

Dr. Smith wants government and the county’s leadership construct a residential quarter for medical personnel assigned in the area.

Also speaking at the dedication of the clinic, Rivercess County senator Dallas Gweh and the Superintendent of the county Wellington Gevon Smith commended government and partners for constructing the first health center ever in that part of the country.

“I’m calling on residents of Boe-gee-zay town to work together in keeping their surroundings clean to avoid those things that would lead to sicknesses in the area”, he continued.

For his part, Rivercess County Legislative caucus chairman Jonathan Barney, who cut the ribbon to the entrance of the clinic said:”The construction of the clinic is part of government’s promises to developing the country”.

“It is a joy that under my tenure as senator of the county a clinic is for the first time constructed in this part of Rivercess”, Senator Barney told the gathering witnessing the dedicatory ceremony of the clinic.
