Ten years after the first national EmOC assessment in Namibia, CMNH LSTM conducted a cross-sectional health facility survey which included:

  • A national referral hospital (NRH), all four intermediate hospitals, all 30 district hospitals,
  • All 43 health centres and
  • 15% (45) of randomly selected clinics nationally.

Specific recommendations for policy and improvement of the quality of care was made for implementation at National and district levels.

District specific reports as well as a national report with facility fact sheets were produced.
