Sheopur, Madhya Pradesh
Primary Health Centre at Village Dodar in Sheopur does not even have basic facilities which it should be having. Though people have been demanding the same for quite some time but this dream still eludes them.
The health centre which has to caters to many villages like Khojipura, Hasilpur, Badiya, Balwani, Khikhari, Manpur, Dhiroli, Makdhod and many others in its near vicinity. It neither has adequate infrastructure nor the adequate medical support which can help people of the block. It neither has X ray machine, nor the pathological laboratory. Even the behaviour of the staff is such that people feel that staff if and when it treats is like doing a favour to them. A lady recently lost her life during delivery in the hospital. There is no drinking water in the health centre? People are urging State and district administration to immediately look into the matter.
