The Ministry of Health and Social Services will build new hospitals and upgrade others in the country.

The Minister of Health and Social Services, Dr. Kalumbi Shangula says, the building and upgrading of some of the hospitals will allow patients to get special treatment in their regions without having to travel long distances. 

The district hospitals will be constructed in Windhoek, Nkurenkuru, Ondangwa and Otjiwarongo and a referral hospital in the Oshana Region is also on the books.

Building sites have been identified with most of the areas already fenced off and the mobilisation of funds is in the process.
