GX visited clinics in Ali Sabieh Region

GX visited the Hôpital Dr Ahmed Absieh and the Centre Médicale Hospitalier d'Ali Sabieh in the South East of Djibouti. The clinics have capacity to provide tertiary level medical and surgical care, as well as long term patient stay. By location, Ali Sabieh serves a large refugee population, displaced from Somalia, Ethiopia, and other places. The region has diverse and complex health needs. An ophthalmology technician at the hospital provides routine cataract screenings and follow up for patients in the region, who are then referred to the capital for surgery. By location and accessibility, Ali Sabieh is an interesting satellite point for GX cataract and humanitarian health projects. GX will collaborate with the medical centres in this region to credit cataract patients at community level for the upcoming project.
