Medicine Shortage in Jajarkot.

You may not believe this but there is no Cetamol in Jajarkot hospital. Forget about health post even the hospital in Jajarkot cannot treat a simple fever. The patient with simple injury is referred to the big hospitals in the city area mostly in Nepalgunj and Surkhet. Every year Jajarkot suffers from epidemics still the hospital is not functioning well and the people of Jajarkot are not getting the treatment. The district hospital and other 3 dozen health posts in Jajarkot are all empty in the human resource, the instruments required for the hospital. Everytime a patient goes for treatment the 50 bedded hospital directly refers them to the city hospitals. The people of Jajarkot district have to get expensive treatments and have to travel far to get to the city to just get treatment of simple health problem.

Though the government has issued about 150 staffs for the hospital and health posts in Jajarkot, till now no one has reached that place.
