Gundri Panchayat waits for a healthcare facility
By The Hindu 29-Aug-2019
To meet their healthcare needs, all that the people of the 22 villages in the panchayat have is a private dispensary and a mobile health team that visits them once a week.
Located in the Sathyamangalam Panchayat Union, Gundri is situated 94 km from Erode. Though the 2011 census estimates the population at the panchayat to be 3,852 persons and 1,800 households, residents say almost 5,700 people live there now.
“We need a hospital in the panchayat,” said 57-year-old Abraham of Chinna Gundri. The villagers want a health centre that will have facilities to treat pregnant women.
Moreover, the panchayat is not covered by any mobile network and has poor bus connectivity.
Pregnant women have to travel to the PHC at Basunavapuram, which is also 17 km away. “Women travel on two-wheelers over a damaged road during pregnancy to reach the hospital, but there is no other option,” added Perumal, another villager.
