Health and Child Care Minister Dr David Parirenyatwa says government has set aside seven hundred thousand dollars for the construction of ten village health posts before the end of March.

In an interview with Star FM News, Dr Parirenyatwa said they are targeting at least 6 600 community health posts across the country in the long run, to reduce the distance people travel to seek medical attention.

Some people have been traveling for over forty kilometres to access health services which have contributed to low health seeking behaviour, with some also avoiding clinics because of the costs associated with them.
