Toledo has been involved in primary health care since 1981. Primary Health Care addresses the main health problems in the community; providing preventive, curative and rehabilitative services. It includes education about prevailing health problems and the methods of preventing and controlling them.

Promoting the importance of:

  • adequate supply of safe water and basic sanitation
  • pre & postnatal care; family planning
  • immunization against major infectious disease
  • prevention and control of locally endemic diseases, appropriate treatment of common diseases and injuries
  • provision of essential drugs

Our current areas of focus are screening for cervical cancer, improving pre and postnatal care services, improving nutrition, access to safe water, adequate sanitation and hygiene practices by working along with all our communities in Toledo.




During emergencies arising from Hurricanes, Floods, and other natural phenomenon the Toledo District Health Services responds according to its emergency response management plan. The plan forms a part of the National Emergency Management Organizations district level response. The focus of emergency response interventions is to prevent outbreak and spread of diseases, maintain calm and help people to return to normal. Response is lead by the Deputy Regional Health Manager; there must be collaboration & coordination amongst all health service providers in the district .
