Healthcare Services Study (2008) revealed that the state of most rural
healthcare facilities required massive refurbishments.
In response to
this need, National Healthcare Trust Zimbabwe, in consultation with the
Ministry of Health and Child Welfare refurbishes health facilities across the
country guided by the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare priority list. This involves repair and or replacement of roofing,
flooring, plumbing and electrical fixtures and fittings. Infrastructure
improvement has been found to enhance health delivery through motivating staff,
creating a safe and clean environment for patients and reducing the risk of
infection and contamination.
In addition, the
Trust facilitates the setting up of backup energy as a way to support the
conventional electricity through provision of solar energy in the health
facilities. To date the Trust has refurbished thirty health facilities in
Bindura in Mashonaland Central Province, Murewa in Mashonaland East Province
and Insiza and Gwanda in Matebeleland Province.
