NEW HEALTH CENTRE IN DOGO NAHAUWA, PLATEAU STATE, NIGERIA.
Dogo Na Hauwa is a community between Jos South and Barkin Ladi L.G.A in Plateau State, Nigeria. A community of about 3,000 inhabitants which was invaded on the 7th of March, 2010 by herdsmen leaving over 354 people dead and many others maimed. The victims could not access proper health care services due to the absence of a health center in the community, leaving the inhabitants with no other alternative than to resort to self-medication. The nearest health care center (over 17 kilometres on dangerous terrain) is ill equipped, dilapidated and in a very deplorable state as you can see below:
