General Hospital of Kinshasa

Kinshasa November 30, 2005 - The Kinshasa General Hospital, is far from being a bush dispensary. With its 2,000 beds and its 2,250 employees (doctors, nurses and administrative personnel), it is one of Africa's most impressive medical facilities. It offers a full range of services and is the undisputed referral centre for the Congolese capital. Its patients the sick, accident victims and war casualties, both civilian and military have one thing in common: their suffering, which the staff do their best to alleviate with the means available. But those means are often woefully inadequate
