Minister for Information, Communication and Technology and Courier Services and Nyanga South Constituency legislator Hon. Supa Mandiwanzira is set to roll out the annual free medical outreach in his constituency from the 27-28 of August.
The legislator announced his plan through a video on twitter under the hashtag #HatimireKusimbisaConstituency.
Hon Mandiwanzira said the move was meant to benefit those who could not afford to visit doctors for medical examinations.
The annual program has for the last years benefited dozens of people with the help of both foreign and local medical experts.
“The program has seen dozens benefiting from the free medical outreach in the constituency in the last years with local and foreign medical experts. This is happening from the 27th to the 28th of August. Bring relatives and friends who are not well,” he said.
The legislator announced that those who need to be operated for various ailments should also come forth to be booked for operations.
Ailments such as cervical cancer, prostate cancer, high blood pressure among others will also be examined.
Honourable Mandiwanzira said that he had partnered with fifteen doctors from Harare and Mutare and ten nurses from Nyanga District Hospitals and everyone would be attended to.
He said the medical personnel will be available at Nyatate Clinic, Ruchera Clinic, Nyafaru Clinic, Gairezi Clinic, Tombo Clinic, Mt Mellery Clinic, Dombo Clinic, Erin Clinic, Nyajezi Clinic, Spring ValleY Clinic, Claremont Clinic and Nyaruvurwe Clinic.
Earlier this year Honourable Mandiwanzira rolled out a successful tele medical pilot project in Nyanga and Chimanimani a development that improved access to health care services for many rural people who were travelling long distances to district or provincial health centres.
The programme was implemented under a partnership between the Ministry of Health and Child Care, the Ministry of Information Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services, POTRAZ, the International Telecommunications Union and UNDP.
