According to a statement issued on Friday by the office of the Member of Parliament for the constituency, Prof Sospeter Muhongo, a total of 16 health centers have been built so far in different villages through contributions from the residents, support from other stakeholders, and assistance from the Member of Parliament’s office.

The aim is to bring healthcare services closer to the people and reduce the burden of traveling long distances to Bugoji health centre, which currently serves three villages.

“The long distance to access healthcare services is one of the main reasons why residents of Kaburabura village have decided to build their own health centre,” reads the statement.

Currently, the constituency has a total of 29 health centres, with 25 being government-owned and 4 privately owned. Additionally, there are 6 health centres and one district council hospital in the area.

Musoma Rural constituency consists of 21 wards, with 68 villages and 374 hamlets.

Prof Muhongo welcomed development partners to participate in bringing healthcare services closer to the people by contributing to the completion of the health center construction, particularly in Kaburabura village.
