We will build additional staff housing. We intend to rapidly increase our patient intake, and want to make it as convenient as possible for new clinicians to join our staff.
We will support the building of housing for patients. This will allow patients from throughout the region to receive treatment without repeatedly making the strenuous, and often dangerous walks from their home villages to the clinic.
We will support the building of a fully modern laboratory facility. Currently, any patients that require lab testing need to be referred to larger, more distant facilities. Many of these patients require immediate diagnosis and care. The additional time required to get to the testing facilities can often mean the difference between a rapid recovery, or prolonged illness or death.
We will support building a maternity ward. Every day, countless women in the region give birth in almost medieval environments; on the dirt floor of their homes, with a single midwife, limited, if any, medicine, and a few towels for sanitation. A modern maternity ward would give women a safe and sanitary location to deliver and care for their infants. This is a crucial step in the development plan since maternity health and family planning are vital to female empowerment in the community.
