Day 3 of our Namibian trip was spent visiting 2 hospitals in the North of Namibia. We flew from Windhoek to Ondangwa and spent the day travelling with Prof Celestine Mbangtang and visited 2 of the regional hospitals.
|The new part of the hospital meets the older part:|
There is a small oncology unit in the older part of the hospital. Only patients with Karposi's sarcoma are treated with chemotherapy in the unit. Any woman with breast cancer who needs chemotherapy is referred to Windhoek. Surgery can be done at the hospital and the waiting time for surgery is relatively short although there are many emergency operations that compete for theatre time.
