A clinic in rural Ghana

We have selected a site in Ghana’s Eastern Region for our bed net distribution.  We are working about a 30 minute drive from a town called Asesewa.  The photos below are from a clinic serving 8000 people in the region with 5 staff, none of whom are physicians.  A midwife used to perform deliveries there, but she moved.  Now the people from this community give birth in the company of a traditional birth attendant or go to the hospital in Asesewa.  It is the only hospital serving about 90,000 people and it has just one doctor.
