Thousands of people in Chimanimani district are benefitting from a Telemedicine platform launched last year by the Ministry of Health and Child Care to improve access to health care.

Chimanimani District Medical Officer Dr Godwin Choga said six facilities are connected to the telemedicine equipment at Mutambara mission hospital with each servicing an average of 9000 people.

He however said the main challenge being faced by the district in delivery of service through telemedicine was internet connectivity which has been affected by power cuts.
