According to him, this falls in line with the President's vision to increase healthcare facilities and strengthen the existing ones in the country, based on the country's infrastructure deficit. 

Thus to situate some polyclinics in each region, this he said has gone through the process of the government approvals.

This timely intervention comes in the form of the continuation of on-going hospital projects as well as the starting up of new healthcare infrastructures.

The government has prioritized the health of citizens and would not abandon health projects at the expense of the well-being according to the sector Minister.
