Strengthening the clinical infrastructure of Chemolingot Sub-County Hospital in Baringo, Kenya
The project will be carried out by Kaperur CBO and aims to strengthen the clinical infrastructure of Chemolingot Sub County Hospital, in Kenya to improve the management of leishmaniasis cases in the population of the West Pokot area.
With this project the population of the area will be saved from having to travel 100 kilometres up to Kimalel, the only medical centre in the Baringo region. In addition, hospitalisation costs will be reduced, which will allow patients to access the daily vaccine this type of leishmaniasis requires. Follow-up will be provided through the installation of points of interest and comprehensive surveillance and quality services will be ensured for the families of those hospitalised, so they can go and visit them.
Ultimately, the main actions to be carried out are:
- Building activities to refurbish the room and laboratory.
- Acquiring furniture and equipment for the laboratory.
- Installing furniture and equipment.
