Borapansury Primary Health Centre Inaugurated

Kamalanagar, March 13: The Hon’ble Health Minister Pu R. Lalrinliana who arrived Kamalanagar yesterday inaugurated the newly constructed Primary Health Centre at Borapansury. Though construction of the PHC was completed during 2010 but services could not be started immediately due to lack of resources.

Persistent efforts from the authorities of Chakma Autonomous District Council to make the PHC functional finally paid off. On 7th December 2012 the Executive Secretary on behalf of Chakma Autonomous District Council struck a deal with the Secretary, Health & Family Welfare representing the Govt. of Mizoram to run the hospital on PPP model. The agreement has been signed for a period of two years which shall be reviewed and extended from time to time. As per the agreement the responsibility to run the hospital is totally vested with the authorities of CADC. While the Govt. of Mizoram shall provide equipments and medical supplies at par with other PHCs, subject to availability of fund. It will be the responsibility of CADC to recruit staff as per recommended manpower required. The two Health Sub-centres at Borapansury and Jarulsury shall come under the agreement. The Borapansury centre shall cover six villages while the Jarulsury centre five.

The PHC main building was constructed at an estimated cost of Rs.86.19 lac. It has a room for the doctors, a room to be used as operation theatre, a ward, a labour room, an X-Ray & dark room, a casualty room, a laboratory, main centre, kitchen, OPD and other usual components. Besides the main building, one nurse quarter, an OPD building and two staff quarters have been constructed with fund provision under BRGF during 2009.

The local MLA Dangu Nirupam Chakma and Hon’ble Health Minister Pu Lalrinliana while speaking on the occasion disclosed about a similar plan of setting up of another PHC at Longpuighat to be run on the same model, sanction for which to the tune of Rs.1 Crore have been already made, they said.

The Director, Health & Family Welfare while presenting the technical report informed that effort are on for equipping the hospital with an X-Ray machine for which tender has been called, he said.

Dr. B.D. Chakma, Executive Member, CADC told that for modernization of Borapansury town a project has been submitted with the DoNER Ministry which he said was retained.

So far, to run the hospital one medical officer, 5 nurses, an accountant, a laboratory technician and 4 grade IV staff have been appointed.

Health services within CADC has been one of the poorest with one lone Community Health Centre at Kamalanagar catering to a population of more than 50 thousand. The new PHC at Borapansury shall be of great service in an area starved of health care facilities and most importantly for the fact that it shall be managed by the local self Government – CADC.
