Chairman of the city Legislative Council's Commission IV Matnor Ali acknowledged that the hospital on the Jalan RK Ilir, South Banjarmasin, has again received a large budget for the procurement of medical facilities.
Even, he said, the budget allocation this year for the health is Rp218 billion.
"About Rp50 billion specially intended for the purchase of medical devices. We remind them to buy the original, not the fake ones, because many items now look original, even though they are fake, must be controlled properly. That what we ask the Health Office," he said.
DPRD (Legislative Council) will also take control of the medical supplies, as they must be ensured to be truly standard and of good quality, so they will be long-lasting.
