New Boram Hospital to be built says Governor Bird

East Sepik Governor, Allan Bird, has maintained that the new Boram Hospital will be built on the current location.

Governor Bird said it has taken years for the Lands Department and local authorities to allocate land.

Boram Hospital is among other six hospitals in the country to benefit from a loan worth $300 million Australian dollars from the Asian Development Bank.

According to statistics provided by the Health Department, East Sepik is regrettably, one of the provinces outside the top 10 provinces performing poorly in Health service delivery.

But Governor Bird said promised funding in the past 3 years, has swayed resulting in decrease in figures budgeted and allocated.

The East Sepik Governor said the board has not waited with 4 new wards to be built through other sourcing from development partners.

An MOU was signed recently between ADB, Treasury, Health and Planning Department to elevate seven leading hospitals in the country, and Boram is one.

Former Chair of the hospital board and East Sepik Governor Allen Bird said constant push for a new Boram will soon be achieved.

He hopes this plan will ensure a better delivery in health services.
