Hinana, Mr N to ask the Minister of Health

What number of public health facilities are made of asbestos?


In 2011, a base line infrastructure audit found a total of 958 health facilities with at least one type of asbestos building material (roof, ceiling, internal or external walls). Currently we have a total of 382 facilities with at least one component of asbestos out of the four components. A total of 576 facilities have been replaced to date and the plan is to eradicate the remaining ones within the next three financial years in line with available budget.
