The Marange Rural Hospital is an under-resourced hospital in the Mutare region of Zimbabwe. It was selected in 2011 as one of twenty remote hospitals to receive a refurbished maternity ward due to the high incidence of infant mortality at the hospital. This was completed with funds provided by the government of Japan. The hospital also piloted a scheme in 2007 to ensure that HIV positive mother and infant pairs completed follow-up appointments and remained actively cared for by the health cadres in the local area. The abstract for this study can be seen here (TEN is not responsible for external content).
The hospital also benefitted from an IRC Zimbabwe donation in 2011, receiving a HF radio, stethoscopes, fetoscopes, autoclave machines, sterilising pots and solar cell phone chargers under the Emergency Maternal and Neonatal Care Programme, a programme set up to ensure that no woman dies giving birth.
