HEALTH CARE SERVICES
Midwife services for labor and delivery
Mother’s shelter - Few women in rural areas can travel to a hospital or birthing center after their labor has begun. Expectant mothers come to Namwianga’s Mother’s Shelter and stay for the last month of their pregnancy. They are then able to give birth in a proper environment with qualified medical personnel attending.
Surgery Center - A state-of-the-art surgery center has recently been completed. Medical personnel and government officials touring the surgery center have stated that there is nothing else comparable in Southern Province and likely in the entire nation of Zambia. C-sections are now performed at Namwianga, saving lives of both mothers and babies.
HIV/AIDS Treatment - Namwianga Hospital is a certified ART (Antiretroviral Treatment) provider. Over 900 HIV/AIDS patients are enrolled in the ART program at NZHC. They come to Namwianga every 2-3 months to be tested and receive their medications. Counseling and nutrition support are also offered.
Lab and Radiology
Treated Mosquito Net Program - Namwianga works diligently to prevent and treat malaria. Treated mosquito nets are distributed, and antimalarial drugs are dispensed from the Namwianga Hospital. Namwianga has been recognized by the government of Zambia as the top center in the country for reducing the rate of malaria in the surrounding communities.
Cervical Cancer Screening - Namwianga Hospital is certified as a Cervical Cancer Screening Center and provides some treatment services. Since cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in Zambian women, this service benefits many women.
Physical Therapy - Two physical therapists serve on the NZHC staff. The new building which houses the PT program is considered the best facility in the area.
Village Under 5 Clinics - Immunizations and support for young children
