The Darkar clinic opens its doors!
On December 4th, 2016, EliseCare opened the doors to its stationary dispensary in Dakar to a high number of patients. Located in the North-West of Iraqi Kurdistan, near the city of Sakho in the Duhok province and the Turkish-Syrian border and built by UN-Habitat, it is made of 801 precast concrete structures and can accommodate 4,000 individuals. This dispensary is a solution to the permanent need for medical care for displaced populations that are not able to return home. As the probability of the refugees being able to return to their home is quite low, this camp and this clinic are built for an indefinite stay.
The clinic measures 2690 square feet and is composed of 7 consultation rooms: a generalist clinic, an infirmary, a gynecologist clinic, two acupuncture clinics, one for women and one for men, and a lab. The clinic also has a pharmacy and a medicine storage unit and is easily accessible due to its flat surface and ramp access.
The lab lets EliseCare’s team be independent and quick in its care for its patients.
The medical team will not only be able to receive camp residents, but also displaced populations from more isolated area surrounding the camp.
This dispensary will enable the support of the local public health system towards the treatment of its residents.
EliseCare will celebrate its inauguration and the inauguration of the Ainkawa dispensary in February 2017.
