President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih officially inaugurated the new extension of the healthcare centre on Feridhoo Island in Alifu Alifu Atoll on Wednesday. The inauguration ceremony was held in Feridhoo as part of the President's ongoing visit to several islands in the atoll.

After the opening ceremony, President Solih toured the new extension of the healthcare centre and inquired about the services available at the facility. The new wing resolves the shortage of space at the healthcare centre and includes several new facilities that would benefit patients and staff. The administrative office provides a dedicated space for staff to manage patient records and coordinate care, while the public health unit offers various preventive health services. The facility also includes a meeting room and general and medical stores to ensure that essential supplies and medications are readily available.

President Solih's administration has undertaken numerous development projects to improve health services in the atolls. These projects have included infrastructure development, human resource development, and the introduction of new services at health centres, atoll hospitals, and regional hospitals.
