No BHU in Mardan Union Council

The union council Chamtar Dheri does not have a basic health unit (BHU) even though one of its villages has over 2,000 households, according to a Jang news report.

Residents of the union council have to travel 10 kilometres to the Mardan Medical Complex while the nearest BHU is seven kilometres away. Maternal health is at risk in the area due to no healthcare for pregnant women. Residents have demanded that a BHU be established in the union council. The Mardan district health officer is yet to respond to the demand.
