Support us by paying the average salary of a healthcare worker at Masanga Hospital.
At Masanga Hospital we have around 80 health care workers with different qualifications and competences such as:
- Community Health Officers (CHOs), who have gone through a three-year training program that enables the CHO to function at the level of a junior doctor.
- Nurses (state enrolled community health nurse and state registrated nurses)
- Mother and Child Healthcare Assistants (MCHA),
- Masanga trained Nurse Aides, who have gone through a 10-month training course in basic patient care and health monitoring.
These employees are the back-bone of the hospital and the services that we provide, together with the Dutch tropical doctors.
The average monthly salary for a healthcare worker is presently (2017) 500 Danish kroner (~70 €) per month and represents the largest proportion of our running costs.
Masanga DK offers the option to support a healthcare worker with a monthly donation of 500 Danish kroners. As this is a relatively large donation it is also an option to split the costs between several donors.
Presently, 24 of the 80 healthcare workers are sponsored by health care supporters.
