At Panzi Hospital we treat a wide range of patients, both those who have specific conflict-related health problems and those require need normal health care.
The hospital treats thousands of patients every year. We work hard to provide the highest level of health care in an area of the world where facing a number of challenges. These include insufficient water supply and electricity and an unstable security situation. Health care for our most vulnerable patients (survivors of sexual violence, malnourished, and HIV/aids) is free. However due a lack of public funds most patients are required to pay for treatment. Living in one of the poorest countries in the world, more than 50 % of Panzi’s patients cannot pay their medical bills. These costs prevent many more people from seeking hospital care.
Our goal is to improve the overall standard at the hospital in order to secure good health treatment for our patients. A number of high-quality projects are currently managed by Panzi Hospital to reach our specific target groups. However, these projects are dependent upon further institutional support. General contributions to the ongoing work at Panzi Hospital to maintain and improve its current capacity are therefore very helpful.
As a general referral hospital we have different specializations (obstetrics, pediatrics, internal medicine, general and specialized surgery) and we treat for example patients with HIV/AIDS, malnutrition and severe gynaecological problems. We also support patients socio-economically within the SSV (Survivors of Sexual Violence) project and though the transit and safety house Maison Dorcas. Contact Susanne Allden if you want to discuss the ways in which you can support the hospital and the important work it is conducting in the region.
