US Based Church Groups Adopts Gordon Town Health Centre
The Gordon Town Health Centre has been officially adopted by the New Testament Temple
Church of God (NTTCOG), and the Good Neighbours Community Outreach Agency (GNCOA) in collaboration with the Global Jamaica Diaspora Council, Northeast Division, have committed a total of $1 million annually. Over the four-year period, the funds will be used to purchase clinical and office equipment and facilitate minor infrastructure upgrades and maintenance of the facility.
During his speech at the function on Friday, August 13, 2021, Dr.Christopher Tufton, Minister of Health & Wellness, thanked the donors for adopting the Gordon Town Health Centre that is in desperate need of repairs.
The health ministry launched the Adopt-a-Clinic Programme in November 2017. It is designed to target 100 health centres across the island for support from local and international individuals, groups, and corporate entities.
The Gordon Town Health Centre, which is a type three facility, sees approximately 1,750 people monthly. It is the 35th health facility to benefit from the programme.
