THE Makoi Health Centre now boasts a fresher look comprising new furniture, computers, and air condition units among other useful additions aimed at bettering health services around the country.

Giving praise to the current state of the centre was Health Ministry media liaison officer Evlyn Mani who said it was the result of improved private-public partnership over the course of 2013.

"The Health Ministry is grateful for the support shown by the business community and individuals," Ms Mani said in an Information Ministry statement over the weekend.

"In 2013, the Makoi Health Centre also received donations of manual breast pumps, handyman tools, a brush cutter, stainless steel twin tub, entrance locks, microwaves and curtain screens for emergency and treatment rooms."

She said support from the business community and thoughtful individuals allowed for a betterment of health services to communities of people who would not otherwise have received such assistance.
