In a bid to promote health care services, Gwagwalada Area Council has constructed eight clinics in the council within one and half years of the present administration.
The Secretary of Gwagwalada Area Council, Alhaji Usman Yahaya, who disclosed this while addressing newsmen in Gwagwalada, said over 5,000 inhabitants have access to adequate health care services.
He regretted the allegations made by the FCT chapter of Medical Women's Association of Nigeria (NMWAN) that Dobi women are suffering from various kinds of diseases including sexually transmitted diseases.
Yahaya said such diseases are prevalent in cities compared to rural communities which Dobi stands as one of the best communities with adequate healthcare facilities. He noted that sexually transmitted infections were more prevalent in over crowded populations with unregulated social life.
"Since the assumption of the administration, STD's, malaria treatment and ante-natal care are rendered free of charge to women in various government hospitals across the council," he added.
Usman said Dobi clinic was handed over to the Universisty of Abuja Teaching Hospital as a training centre for medical students of the institution due to the modern facilities installed in the clinic.
He maintained that sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) and other transmitted diseases are not peculiar to Dobi community in the area council.
