DRC365 #225

Health Centre. Last week we visited health centres in rural communities. The Head Nurse for this community showed us their sparse laboratory and explained how she often had to do the tests herself as the lab technician was not fully trained. In the other room patients had to share beds as they awaited treatment. This is the first port of call for the sick as the hospital is over 40km away and many do not have the means to travel that far.
