In a first in Nagaland, the department of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Services, Mokokchung launched its Mobile Clinic here today by EAC Mokokchung, Temsuchuba Jamir.
Chief Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Officer, Mokokchung, Dr. BM Sunep while speaking at the Mobile Clinic launching ceremony said that it was the brainchild of the department’s director, Dr. Aomangyang Walling and expressed his gratitude to him for “fulfilling a long cherished dream of providing veterinary health services to the people at their doorsteps.”
It was disclosed that the purpose of the mobile clinic was to visit all the wards and to educate and provide the best services to the people. Dr. BM Sunep said that the people are becoming more aware of the importance of livestock and poultry rearing and the need for proper management and health care. However, he added, the people are very often unable to avail the veterinary services due to many logistic reasons and hoped that with the introduction of the mobile clinic, they would be able to provide doorstep service to the people.
As of now, the mobile clinic service will be limited to Mokokchung town. “To begin with, the mobile clinic will travel twice a month, on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, on rotation to every ward of the town,” Dr. BM Sunep said. He also added that the future course of action would be determined depending on the response of the people.
EAC Mokokchung, Temsuchuba Jamir speaking at the launching ceremony said that it was a proud moment for Mokokchung as it was a first of its kind in Nagaland and encouraged the staff and officers of the department to work sincerely and be dutiful in rendering their services to the people. He said that the success of the mobile clinic initiative would depend on the department’s staff and hoped that they would render exemplary service worthy to be emulated all over Nagaland.
