New Delhi: The reconstruction of hospitals in the border areas of Manipur’s districts of Chandel, Churachandpur and Ukhrul, in north-eastern parts of India have not only helped but also benefited poor Myanmarese who are settled alongside neglected border areas.

The director of health department Manipur, Okram Ibomcha, is working towards rebuilding the border hospitals and overseeing the presence of doctors and paramedics in these remote areas where there are virtually no accommodation and basic amenities.

Three junior doctors are posted at the Public Health Centre (PHC) at Parbung in Churachandpur district.

An agency visited this neglected border village, there was just one doctor. He said since the healthy mountain tribals hardly require hospitalisation, each of the doctors stay there on a 15-day rotation basis.

At the village, the presence of nurses and other staff was also small. There were just two indoor patients.

Kwatha, a border village, can boast of one public health centre (PHC) where one woman delivered a healthy baby in candlelight some days ago. Other PHCs in Ukhrul district have also started functioning normally.

In the recent past, the tribals there used to get medical help from the military hospitals of the Assam Rifles.

In the absence of a hospital at Poi in Ukhrul district, the villagers get help from a small hospital of the Assam Rifles there.

From time to time, the Assam Rifles has been issuing press releases on medical camps in these interior areas and saving snake bite victims.(IANS)
