  • 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.
