The new hospital in Fomena is now operational, with the maternity ward, outpatient department, paediatrics ward and dental facilities now all in use. From the initial concept and planning, to the first baby being born there last week, this amazing project will transform healthcare in the region.

The state-of-the-art facilities will reduce disease and increase the vaccination rate. The dedicated maternity centre will provide more women with access to healthcare during pregnancy and childbirth, reducing neonatal deaths.

The hospital has brought jobs to the area as well as healthcare, with increased training opportunities for those living near the site.

The hospital can play a vital role in the monitoring of public health. Should a disease outbreak occur (measles, cholera) the well-equipped hospital will not only be able to quickly spot such an epidemic, but also take steps to quell it before it becomes more widespread.
