Despite Namibia’s relative affluence, the health care system provides inadequate care, with long waits and a shortage of doctors. This hospital is one of the more established care facilities in the country.
With major support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Synergos helped launch the African Public Health Leadership and Systems Innovation Initiative. The Initiative aims to create positive system changes that can lead to an improved system of healthcare in Namibia. The work is also designed to be adapted and used in other parts of Africa.
