In and around mining sites in Africa, access to quality health services for employees, their dependents and local communities is critical.
This is particularly the case in remote areas such as north-eastern DRC. Our client required options on how to best improve health care around its area of operations.
Montrose was contracted to carry out a feasibility study on how best to improve access to inpatient care.
The study included the assessment of the condition of Mongbwalu Hospital and a nearby Maternity Health Centre and an initial costing to renovate and equip both institutions.
In addition, the study considered implementation modalities including adopting a phased public-private partnership approach for health service provision for local employees and their families. Referral options both within north-eastern DRC and regionally (Uganda, Kenya) were also assessed.
Montrose’s feasibility study on the renovation and improvement of Mongbwalu Hospital improved the client’s ability to provide health services to local employees, their families and the surrounding community.
