Centro Evangélico de Medicina do Lubango Women's Health Centre
The intent of Centro Evangélico de Medicina do Lubango (CEML) is to build and equip a Women’s Health Centre on the hospital site. This will support CEML in its required medical services expansion. In proceeding with the Women’s Health Centre, CEML will be able to:
- more effectively minister to the spiritual needs of the patients.
- address the demand for birthing services and increase obstetric fistula clinic capacity. This will positively impact infant mortality and maternal mortality.
- implement an education and training program for a generalist doctor, midwife and nurse while continuing the existing obstetric fistula literacy programme.
- initiate the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS) residency-training programme.
This is a priority ministry as it addresses a vital need of marginalised people within Angolan society, namely women and children, especially the many young women suffering from vaginal fistulas due to lack of obstetrical care.
