1st Report January - June 2010
The government is yet to take action on this promise. According to the National Ambulance Services, they have only 24 ambulance stations located in accident prone areas and major hospitals in 24 out of the 170 districts, and those were established about 6 years ago. The secretariat hinted that it is expensive to establish resource and train personnel to Man an ambulance station and will therefore need time to recruit and train people and also source for funding for the project.
