The Secretary General and head of the Civil Service last week visited the over GMD27Million Gambia government and the Islamic Development Bank new staff quarters of the AFPRC General Hospital in Farafenni in the North Bank Region. The visit, as SG Nyabally stated, among other things was meant to inspect the new developments that occurred in the facility as the Hospital continues to play a vital role in health care delivery of The Gambia.
The construction of the staff quarters is part of the civil works component of the Health Facilities Expansion Project (HFEP) that targets to provide access to quality health services for Gambian people. It involves the construction of junior staff quarters (single rooms); one bedroom house (duplex); two-bedroom houses and three-bedroom houses. The project also provided a water tank and a new 80KVA generator. This project is expected to boost staff moral and serve as a motivation in the execution of their duties as the government targets to maintain the enviable healthcare delivery of The Gambia.
Since the advent of the July 22nd Revolution, 21 years ago, the Jammeh administration has never hidden its desire and commitment to making The Gambia’s healthcare system a model to envy not only in the sub-region, but throughout the world. The Second Republic has built several hospitals and health centers across all the major towns and villages in the country, equipping them with one of the best facilities and a qualified and motivated human resource base. This has impacted positively in making our healthcare delivery one of the best now and the various awards received, especially of recent, are a clear manifestation of that.
So as we once again congratulate the Jammeh administration for providing a state-of-the-art staff quarters for the staff of the AFPRC General Hospital in Farafenni, we would like to implore on the staff to handle the facilities with care and as well continue to server the national cause with diligence, patriotism and dedication to duty.
