In order to make a meaningful contribution to the global call to reduce the infant mortality rate in line with WHO Millenium Development Goals, there is now an urgent need to renovate our Unit to enable it to operate at optimum levels.
This renovation will:
- Directly contribute to reducing infection rates, improving the overall chances of survival.
- Provide the space required for mothers to be actively involved in the daily care of their babies, greatly reducing pressure on nursing staff.
- Improve the layout, overall efficiency and functioning of the Unit by eliminating logistical hazards of moving, storing and relocating lifesaving equipment in a confined space.
