Historic visits to 'Livingstone's Hospital'

Chitambo Hospital, central Zambia, is on the map! Dr Malama, Permanent Secretary for Health, paid his first visit to the hospital on 15th February. What an honour. The visit was a great success. Several Scottish Government officials have also, previously, visited Chitambo. Hopefully the hospital, founded in memory of Dr David Livingstone, who died nearby, will one day have all the resources it needs.

Imagine a Scottish district general hospital with no running water, autoclave, or utility vehicle? Just a few of the challenges Dr Malama found during his visit to Chitambo Hospital, the living memorial to Scottish hero Dr. David Livingstone.
