existing clinic is in a poor state of repair and is inadequate in terms
of size, provision of facilities, state of cleanliness, provision of
medicine as well as medical staff.
is proposed to complete the construction of the clinic and to equip it
with appropriate medical equipment including; x-ray scanners and other
addition it is proposed to construct a new maternity unit and mortuary –
I guess you could say it would be a cradle to grave service.
As health care is almost non-existent in the district and many people become sick or are suffering from conditions that could be easily treated, it is proposed to hold a medi-camp as a “one off” event over a three day period. It will consist of a series of temporary buildings or tents each one staffed by a number of doctors or nurses from Kenya, UK and USA who have expertise covering a variety of common medical conditions.
The medical professionals will donate their time and skills at no charge; medicines will be made available from donations and locals will be invited for a health check up or specific consultation and treatment.
In addition it is proposed to provide a fully equipped mobile health vehicle to provide access to remote areas allowing sick people to be reached without the need for them to travel long distances on foot to the clinic.
The government has previously stated that if such a new facility is built then it would fund the provision of additional medical staff for the clinic.
