News from the clinic

NQA built the clinic at Nawur in 2011 and supported and ran it until 2015 when it was officially handed over to the state. Today the clinic is supported by the Organization for Research and Community Development (ORCD) in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health.

We visited the clinic in 2016 and were impressed to see how well the it is functioning; it has become part of Nawur’s identity and life. It is well-maintained and has become a normal part of the community’s life.

According to a report by the ORCD and the Ministry, the clinic with its 7 staff (2 women and 5 men) continues to provide a good service for the Nawur community. In 2016 alone, a total of 8’377 women, men and children were treated in this center. Over 100 babies were born in the clinic and vaccination is continuing for women and children.
