Our clinic is what is known as an Up Country Clinic.
This means in essence that we treat the everyday sicknesses etc that do not need hospital intervention. Ie .malaria, typhoid, amoebic complaints, burns, scalds, cuts.
A large part of our nurses work is taken up with childbirth , pre and post natal care. Delivery usually takes place in the clinic for those who desire it, but it must be said that a considerable percentage give birth in the bush according to the traditional manner.
All those we cannot treat for any reason, sickness, accident or childbirth, are referred to hospital and transport costs are given to ensure they get there.
