The Kasongo and Kapanda Mini Hospital sites in the Mansa District were successfully handed over to the Ministry of Health on 22nd October, with staff now beginning to settle into the facilities, ready for their first patients.
The first set of mini hospitals completed on the ‘Built To Care’ Zambia project, in Tubalange, Nakachenje and Mondengwa, are now being utilised to provide their local communities with high quality health services. Nakachenje alone has already served over 700 patients and successfully and safely delivered 8 babies.
Maternal and Child Healthcare (MCH) sessions have also been held at these three Mini Hospitals, with a dedicated day held at each of these facilities for under-five’s where weighing and examination consultations are offered by midwives in order to diagnose any ailments or injuries. This is an outpatient service where pregnant mothers can congregate, share stories and listen to talks on wellbeing and healthy living while undergoing examinations to ensure everything is well.
