“The government and President Edgar Lungu aims to take quality healthcare services as close as possible to the people without leaving anyone behind,” he said.

He added that residents in areas where the health posts have been constructed were previously covering long distances to access health services in nearby communities.

He explained that the province was allocated 88 health posts of which 84 have been completed while the remaining four are almost complete.
