How the MES Project has transformed maternal healthcare in Garissa Hospital

Consultant Anesthesiologist at Garissa Referral Hospital, Dr. Billow shares how the Managed Equipment Services (MES) project has transformed healthcare at the hospital. The ICU now has six beds and they have admitted about 91 patients who were in need of critical care. The hospital has had a success rate of about 70% of these patients. For Dr. Billow, one of the things that has been outstanding is the maternal cases. Some of the patients admitted and successfully discharged are mothers who are pregnant or come with pregnancy related complications such as eclampsia and require intensive care.
