Sonam Wangchuk, Health Assistant
Health Assistant, Gortshum Basic Health Unit, Lhuentse, Bhutan
I am a Health Assistant working in Gortshum BHU under Lhuentse, Eastern part of Bhutan since 20th August 2007 after completion of 2 years Certificate course in Health Assistant from Royal Institute of Health Sciences, RUB, Thimphu, Bhutan.
My job description as Health Assistant mainly focuses on Preventive, Promotive and Curatives of health problems in the community level. I am in charge of health centre taking responsibilities of doctor, nurse, pharmacy, midwife, technician and educator in general.
I have been working and dealing with the people in the community for the last 7 years, which is why in order to upgrade my knowledge and to learn more about Sexual and Reproductive Health I partook in this course. The knowledge I would gain from this course would immensely help me in rendering better services to community people and also to perform my duty in a better way.
