BONDA Mission Hospital in Mutasa Central on Wednesday receivedÃ‚Â a shot in the arm after taking delivery of a CD4 count machine from Bio-Medical Research and Training Institute.
The gesture, which is aimed at reducing the impact of HIV and Aids on the infected and affected in Mutasa District, was well received by the locals as a major boost.
"We are really grateful that the communities have positively embraced the idea of fighting HIV and Aids. We, however, cannot do that alone, but with the help of the Ministry (of Health), stakeholders and the community. We realised that Bonda Mission Hospital is a referral hospital in Mutasa District and I believe the district was in critical need of the CD4 count machine. We feel great because we are seeing positive results and response from the public as compared to when our organisation started in 1994," she said.
Speaking at the same event, the Member of Parliament for Mutasa Central, Mr Trevor Saruwaka, said the donation came at a time when the district was facing a critical shortage of medical equipment.
