Health center at Lemi
Lemi Health Center, a hub of the Amhara Regional Health Bureau, inaugurated its new extended health institution on Thursday. Costing USD 1.5 million to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), this was part of the legacy of the PEPFAR program that was started during the era of President George W. Bush to help curb the AIDS epidemic within the country. It is estimated that more than 25,000 people will benefit in the area via basic services such as immunizations for children, safe childbirth delivery, HIV care and treatment services. “Here in this community and in many parts of the country, extremely long walks to get to healthcare facilities had been the norm for generations, said USAID Mission Director, Leslie Reed at the ceremony.
