Social Services

We Provide Service in Chegutu District Since 1998

Council is mandated by the RDC Act to provide Social Services. Council is running seventeen clinics which are dotted around the district. Our health facilities are providing a wide range of services that include out patients, Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI), maternity services, opportunistic infections services and ART services
Chegutu Rural District has 29 wards- 10 are communal and the rest are former commercial and small scale purchase areas. The land reform programme prodded a change in migration patterns where we witnessed the migration of people from urban, rural communal to the farming communities. This has its own advantages and disadvantages. The migration of people created a need for social service facilities such as schools,clinics and WASH services.
Chegutu RDC has implemented a lot of projects to cater for the need of these communities, resettlement as well as communal populations.
