Health Services

Umguza Rural District Council (RDC) has made significant progress in providing accessible healthcare services to its residents through the establishment of clinics across various wards within the district. These clinics play a crucial role in addressing the healthcare needs of the local community and ensuring that essential medical services are available to all. The clinics offer a range of services, including general consultations, maternal and child health care, immunization, family planning, HIV/AIDS testing and counseling, and minor surgical procedures. Additionally, some clinics have specialized departments, such as dental and ophthalmology units, to cater to specific health concerns. While some of the clinics have been completed and are fully operational, there are still a few that are under construction. The ongoing construction projects reflect Umguza RDC's commitment to improving healthcare infrastructure and increasing access to quality healthcare services for its residents.
