Lira district local government has launched the construction of a twin staff house at Alik HCIII in Wiodyek sub-county worth Shillings 168 million. The district has contracted Reca Nero Logistics LTD to undertake the construction work with funding from the Uganda Government Infrastructural Fund Transfer (UgIfT). 

The self-contained house meant to accommodate two staff will have a 5000-liter water harvesting tank and another 1000-liter tank to supply water to the inside facilities. Alik HCIII, which was recently upgraded from health center II  has eleven staff.

However, only four have been residing within the facility while the rest, including the in-charge commute from their homes. Patrick Buchan Ocen, the Lira District Health Officer explains that the construction of the staff houses is part of the plan by the district to provide staff accommodation in the newly elevated health facilities.

//Cue in: “The staff infrastructure…

Cue out: …upgraded health facilities.//”

He appealed to the contractor to deliver work within the stipulated time frame.

//Cue in: “Time is fast…

Cue out: …has been stipulated. //”

Anyes Akullo, the Assistant Nursing Officer In-charge of Alik HC111 explains that having only a few staff residing at the facility affects service delivery because most time those who operate from outside arrive late and hence don't serve their clients well. She also notes that is expensive for the staff to rent houses for themselves.

//Cue in: “Coming from home…

Cue out: …not very easy.//”

She is optimistic that the staff house when completed will facilitate service delivery.

//Cue in: “It will really…

Cue out: …life is saved.//”

Morris Adem Okello, the Lira District speaker cautioned the contractor and his team against starting sexual relationships with married women neighboring the construction site, saying this has been a common practice that in most cases has resulted in domestic violence and sometimes death.

//Cue in: “Engineer my request…

Cue out: …are not there. //”

Moses Twinomujurizi, the site engineer for Reca Nero Logistics LTD promised to deliver quality work within the stipulated time frame.

//Cue in: “I promised you…

Cue out: …in good relations.”//

Alik is the first health center in Lira district to be upgraded to health center III.
