Day 1 - 27/07/2008

since 2day was our first day, we reach the district health office at 9am,but unfortunately the Pengarah was attending a conferance which only finished at 2.45pm. so we were told to come at 2.30pm to attend a briefing. the briefing was on Maternal Child Health(MCH), which was given by head of community nurse. the briefing ends at around 4.20pm. apart from that we also visited other departments within the district health office,for instance food and qality dept, and environmental dept.
