Lack of medication in Motlhabe clinic

Community Alerts/ Mmatema Matswane/Motlhabe-Rustenburg/19/09/2018

During the month of August 2018, there has been a shortage of some medication at Motlhabe clinic which lasted for a period of a month. It affected many people who are living with chronic diseases e.g hypertension patients. They had to spend money on their medication and most of them depending on social grants.

This affects the community because most of us are living with chronic diseases such as HIV, hypertension, and diabetes. Department of health should work hard on peoples health and make sure our clinic operate for 24 hours instead of 8 hours. By Mmatema Motswane
