Jennifer deplores dire state of health facilities

Taleigao’s Congress MLA Jennifer Monserrate said there was a huge shortage of life saving drugs and syringes in the hospitals and primary health centres.

In addition to this, she urged to increase the number of ambulances while also commissioning operation theatre in the Goa Medical College, neo natal units in Mapusa hospital, etc. Besides, she expressed concern about the cases of breast cancer in Goa quoting a study wherein 250-350 cases were detected in Goa medical college. “The mobile clinic is rotting. It should be reutilized also because women in villages will benefit,” she said. [H]
