Aids Health-Care Foundation (AHF) has assisted council with portable cabins to help increase space availability at Glen View Polyclinic.
The cabins provide additional consultation space at one of the city’s busiest clinics.
Speaking at the handover ceremony held at the clinic today Mayor, Cllr Herbert Gomba, said the cabins add value to the works of council.
"Under the residents first mantra we are going to work with everyone who is willing to improve the status of our community. This property we have been given is very important to us," he said.
He hailed the bold steps taken by AHF in strengthening the long standing partnership.
“I would like to thank AHF for not hesitating to enter into a marriage with us, as marriage is usually lifelong and we are bound to face challenges together. I hope that you will be there to fight all the challenges with us,"
"As council we always welcome partnerships, memorandum of understandings as long as they benefit the residents," he said.
Health Services Director, Dr Prosper Chonzi, said support from AHF will improve service delivery.
"The cabins are now fully furnished, and they have also given us a doctor that is going to help in improving our service delivery here at Glen View Polyclinic, though he will be working at Mabvuku polyclinic most of the time," he said
AHF country director Dr Enerst Chikwati said the health relations betwen the foundation and ciuncil will motivate more support.
"AHF is here to stay, as we seek to improve the service delivery of our city’s health services department.
"Our Foundation has stationed a contractor at Mabvuku, who is currently working on the walkways there as we seek to improve the infrastructure of our polyclinic facilities," he said.
