CIMERWA Clinic

The CIMERWA Clinic was established at commissioning of the plant in 1984. It includes a pharmacy, a 13-bed hospital and a laboratory manned by trained staff. It has grown over time with the addition of new services like family planning, HIV care, and immunization with vaccines provided by the Government. It now has a staff of 11, including a physician, two lab technicians, seven nurses and a cashier. In addition to the staff of the plant and their dependents, the Health Centre is open to the local population who pay a subsidized consultation fee and the medicines are made available to them at cost price. The clinic is constantly growing and has now acquired a brand new ambulance that will also be used in community outreach programs organized by the clinic.
