The pregnancy rate on Kiriwina in the first quarter of 2021 has doubled compared to the last quarter of 2020 as reported by sister Linnesse of Losuia Health Centre. The high rate of pregnancy is also confirmed by the Village Birth Attendants (VBA’s) from various circuits of Kiriwina. According to Linnese of Losuia Health Centre, the Losuia Health Centre had run out of family planning birth control measures, resulting in a high rate of pregnancies. The Losuia Health Centre is in desperate need of family planning control methods and measures. Also, the Losuia Health Centre is short of basic drugs and medical supplies and is in need of such supplies.
Due to the high rate of pregnancy, the Losuia Health Centre and Kiriwina VBA’s are requesting more birthing kits, hand gloves, face masks, soap, touches, buckets, umbrellas, touches or lanterns, and batteries to assist them to attend to deliveries during day and night.
