The original hospital buildings were constructed in 1950, but after decades of Niger’s harsh climate, the buildings have greatly deteriorated.
In 2003 a team of engineers came to assess the state of our facility and it was determined that the buildings contained several structural hazards.
In the 2000 the process of rebuilding began with the construction of a new operating room and pharmacy. In 2007 the Housekeeping department was added along with a facility for staff toilets and lockers.
