The Healthcare System In Africa
With 54 countries on the African Continent, each of which has a different economy, government and approach to public health care, it is difficult to summarize a “standard” of health care BUT, there are some things that we know for sure:
African Hero Day Clinics
African Hero has 3 proposed designs for day clinics. All our designs utilize recycled shipping containers as the basis for the structure allowing for faster construction and implementation times and ensuring we contribute positively to preserving the environment.
All of our day clinics (and schools) are fully serviced with electricity provided through solar power with back up in the form of a generator. In addition, a fully operational water purification and filtration system is included. All day clinics are fully air conditioned to provide a temperate atmosphere for patients and staff and we will ensure that all clinics will be run by senior nursing staff.
Our clinics come integrated with technology based medical diagnostic and treatment equipment including ECG’s, Dynamic Monitors and Rapid test kits integrated into a cloud-based patient management system. This allows doctors to treat patients at these clinics virtually utilising the diagnostic information gathered by nurses. By using machine-learning and artificial intelligence this software works to assist doctors in finding an accurate diagnosis. All data gathered by this system is handily converted into fully analyzed packages that can be used to evaluate the performance and efficiency of each individual day clinic.
Our day clinics come with a built-in dispensary allowing patients to retrieve their medication at any of the sites.
Staff accommodation is always provided on site to allow nurses to be on site with enough ablution facilities and storage for personal items.
The day clinics are properly secured making use of CCTV cameras, high quality fencing and reinforced doors and windows.
Covered waiting areas at each site allow for patients to wait in areas of comfort.
