I will be honest with you. I have not visited the clinic yet so I am asking. Sure if I come around to Waps during x-mas breaks will pop around and see whats happening and make my final decision.
Look, I support the clinic. And thats a good thing for bussiness in Waps and Enga. And offers an alternative for those who want private medical care. I have no problem with that.
I am just wondering what a coinsidence that the clinic opens with the general election around the corner?? It may be just pure coincidental but just asking. Thinking aloud here....
My conscience would not allow me to open a private clinic in Waps, simple because I would feel guilt asking a simple villager to pay for 1 week dose of antibiotic or anti-helminthic medication when I am fully well aware that they do not have a salary package every forthnight.
I would rather help them to make use of that money to take preventative measures eg. buy a tank to store rain water for clean drinkng water, build a proper toilet for better hygiene, or improve and better design the traditional housing so that they do not have to suffer painfull death when they are 50 years from cor pulmonale as a result of inhaling smoke inside the houses, or...I can go on and on here...
I am not negative. I just want to simple see a better and cost-effective health care to our people.
