Kasese Health Center
Healthcare in Malawi is woefully inadequate. Under-funding and under-staffing often make basic care unavailable to most Malawians. Hospitals often have unsanitary conditions and regularly run out of basic medicines like malaria treatment.
Our rural Health Center and Mobile Outreach Clinic fill the gap. We employ an excellent team of highly trained Malawian staff that includes three clinical officers, eight nurses, and thirteen patient care attendants. Our fully stocked pharmacy provides some of the only access to high-quality medicine for miles around. We deliver 40 or more babies a month in our maternity ward and provide excellent prenatal care for up to 100 mothers at any given time. Our ambulance drivers transport serious cases to higher levels of care, creating a critical lifeline to healthcare for thousands of people.
“Why do people travel to our clinic from other areas that have their own health centers or hospitals?”
“Because we have medicine. At the others, there is no medicine.”
