GX project team visited Champasak Hospital with Guangxi expert medical team to understand the local context and to assess the situation of medical and public health care in the province. Champasak has a population of 700,000, this hospital is the central hospital serving the 4 southern provinces and is also a training hub for local professionals. During the pandemic, this was the only hospital offering PCR for the whole southern region. The hospital has the facility to conduct cataract surgery, but a lot of support from NGOs is required. Dr. Zeng Siming, an expert ophthalmologist from Guangxi, examined the first GX patient in Champasak. We hope to continue our engagement with Champasak, and sincerely thank the local team for the warm welcome and thank you Guangxi medical team for their participation!
