The Centre for Social Concern (CFSC) is pushing the authorities to operationalize the Phalombe District Hospital.
CFSC Program Manager responsible for Economic Justice Bernard Mphepo made the remarks during a tour at the facility with members of the community and Traditional leaders in the district.
Construction of the health institution started in 2012 under the late former President Bingu was Mutharika.
Initially the construction works were supposed to take two years to be completed.
While commending the progress made so far, Mphepo insist on the need for relevant authorities to officially launch its operations, so that the local community starts benefiting from it.
Through its Enhancing Transparency and Accountability on Debt Projects for Reduced Poverty and Inequality, CFSC has been engaging the community and the authorities to make follow ups on the progress made not only for the hospital, but also projects at council level.
