Musungu Health Clinic

Year: 2016
Country: Zambia

Project Description

Musungu, Zambia has a large population that is geographically isolated and far from services. The nearest health clinic is a great distance away and residents must make considerable journeys to receive medical care, often 20 kilometers or more. This project seeks to convert an existing house in the community into a small health clinic, making use of the home’s many rooms to serve as miniature wards, waiting rooms, and meeting spaces. The project also calls for a devoted pediatric ward in the construction plans to serve the area’s infants and young children, a population group facing high mortality.
