It with great pleasure that I'm here today to inaugurate and officiate Onambutu Clinic. This new clinic was constructed by MoHSS to the value of N$ 1 784 044.39. This facility consists of: 1 consulting room, treatment room, a pharmacy and a waiting room. According to the year 2001 updated National Census this clinic serves a population of 5000 and 60- 50 clients are seen daily. The GRN under the leadership of SWAPO Party is commited to provision of accessible, affordable and acceptable health delivery to various communities countrywide. For instance; Omboloka Clinic was opened last year. Ongha Health Centre in completion stage. Oshaango Clinic under construction and will start operating next year. In Eenhana Hospital the Directorate Management Team Office extension, Dental Clinic, General Stores and Mortuary are under construction. In all 3 district hospitals, of Ohangwena Region the ART Clinics are under construction. All the districts dilapidating buildings are under renovation. A new clinic with staff accommodation at Onangolo and Omungwelume Clinic staff accommodation has been approved. It was brought to my attention that the Onambutu provides the acceptable services which really indicates the good attendance. From January to September 2008 the clinic attendance shows the following: OPD cases < 5 years = 721 >5 years and above = 2407 ANC attendances 1st visit =135 EPI Coverage 105 Family planning 1st visit 44 Follow up visit 320 PMTCT reported visited the clinic 135 ? Out of the nine (9) babies born by HIV positive mothers through the program of PMTCT, seven (7) of them tested negative.

Voluntarily Counseling Testing (VCT) are 255, female 220 while male- 35. Forty five (45) tested HIV positive ( 36- female and 9- male) TB patients- 10 Outreach Services The clinic has six Outreach points. Which are to be visited monthly basis. Diseases of Public Concern:

  • Malaria
  • TB
  • Diarrhea
  • Respiratory infection

Some of these diseases are a result of personal hygiene and poor living conditions. Public Health Sanitation Each year, the Ministry provides materials for VIP toilets Construction. The Community members are expected to meet the government half way in building toilets to improve health and wellbeing in the area. I was made to believe that the Indangungu, Oshaango and Onambutu Water Pipe- line is underway which will increase the access to portable water and thus reduce incidence of water borne disease. Malaria Prevention Programme: The programme is addressed through a spraying program and distributions of impregnated mosquito nets are part of Ministry commitment. In collaboration with our development partners in particular the Global Fund the Ministry has acquired to factors for the malaria programme and these are to be used in Ohangwena Region. I therefore commend our partners in the endeavours of supporting Government in the health service delivery. With the government limited financial resources MoHSS will continue to provide health services to various communities all over the country with the help from development partners. We can go an extra- mile I believe. (ii) Staff shortage: The MOHSS is addressing the problem of shortage on professional by recruiting them from friendly countries e.g. Cuban Doctors and Kenyan Nurses. The Ministry managed to fill most of the Enrolled Nurses through training of Namibians from the streets who obtained Grade (12) twelve with science subjects.

With these few words, I declare Onambutu PHC Clinic Official opened. I thank you for your attention.

ILLEGAL drug abuse is at an all-time high in Namibia, Health and Social Services Minister Richard Kamwi, warned yesterday.

He said Namibia can not allow itself to be turned into a drug consumer country and called on each and every Namibian to act as a whistle-blower against the sellers and abusers of illicit substances. Speaking at a ceremony in Windhoek, the Health Minister cited media coverage earlier this year of a number of foreign suspects arrested and found in possession of cocaine, after flying to Namibia from Brazil, to underline what is happening. Approximately N$3 million worth of cocaine was seized by the Police's Drug Law Enforcement Unit in those hauls. Kamwi congratulated the Police on these arrests, saying drug abuse has come “under the spotlight” in Namibia. “But these uniformed men and women cannot do it alone. For them to succeed calls on all of us as Namibians to be whistle-blowers. Namibia should not and never should be used as a route or dumping place for their illegal activities,” Kamwi said.

He called especially on women, who he said often suffer domestic violence because of drug and alcohol abuse, to expose those involved in the trade. “Statistics suggest that more and more females are involved in illicit trafficking. We saw for example an Angolan husband who recently lost his Namibian wife due to the swallowing of cocaine,” the Minister said.
Especially worrying, the Minister said, is Namibia's gradual transition from a transit route for illegal drugs to a consumer country.
“We're such a small country of two million. How can we allow this to happen.” UN Acting Resident Co-ordinator Joyce Mends-Cole shared Kamwi's concerns. She underlined that drug abuse is threatening the developmental gains made since Independence. “No individual, family or community is safe where illicit drugs take control. Drugs may control the body and mind of individual consumers, the drug crop and drug cartels may control farmers and other producers of food crops, illicit trafficking and crime may control communities,” Mends-Cole said. Although the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is still three days away, Namibia already yesterday pledged its alliance with the United Nations against the drug trade. The official commemoration of the day takes place on Friday, but the Health Ministry decided to bring forward because of other commitments over the weekend. Two marches are scheduled to be held on Friday and Saturday in Windhoek to mark the day. The first of these will start at 08h00 on Friday at Tommy Jarman Funeral Services in Khomasdal's Hans-Dietrich Genscher Street.
That march will end at the David Bezuidenhout High School, where the group Teenagers Against Drug Abuse (TADA) will entertain participants.
