Renovating and Equipping Key Health Facilities to Improve Patient Care
Guinea’s fragile health system was deeply affected by the Ebola outbreak, which exposed the need for basic infrastructure improvements. At the bustling Ignace Deen Hospital in Conakry, APC renovated restrooms, crumbling staircases, walls, and ceilings, making it a safer, more hygienic, and more welcoming environment for patients. With these improvements, the hospital can now practice infection prevention and control and provide better care for Ebola survivors and the general population.
“Now all the staff work in better conditions. This has improved the care for Ebola survivors.”
APC refurbished aging infrastructure, repairing windows, walls, flooring, ceilings, and roofs of eight health facilities in some of Guinea’s hardest-hit communities. APC also installed solar panels and electrical systems, fans and air conditioning, well pumps with water towers, and new bathroom facilities and plumbing fixtures.
