Healthcare service at the Okahao District Hospital is expected to improve with the arrival of medical equipment from the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS).

The equipment is valued at N$6 million: an electrical auto switch generator, an oxygen plant, X-ray machines, dental equipment, and laundry equipment.

The oxygen plant will now allow the hospital to produce its own oxygen by January 2024.

An x-ray, the only one of its kind in the region, will help patients from across the region and beyond.

The hospital's senior medical officer, Dr. Nghishikushitya Mutilifa, says the equipment will improve the provision of healthcare to the 250 patients who visit the hospital daily, when needed.

Dr. Mutilifa says service provision will be improved because of the availability of the new equipment.
