Hospital Redevelopment Project

The original hospital buildings were constructed in 1950, but after decades of Niger’s harsh climate, the buildings have greatly deteriorated.

Why Redevelop

It was identified by a team of engineers who visited, that our buildings contained several structural hazards which need to be addressed.

The redevelopment of Galmi Hospital will not only make our buildings safer, but will improve the ministry of the hospital to the Nigerien community, not by increasing the number of patients that can be admitted, but by providing adequate space and beds for the patients already being cared for, all the while increasing the standard of care for future patients.

The first phase of redevelopment, the operating facilities and the pharmacy, was completed in 2000 with the realization that an ongoing program was necessary.
