residents in Turkana county
Lodwar county referral hospital is a public hospital located in Turkana county in the northern part of Kenya.
Due to the remote location of Turkana county, the hospital is the only accessible source of critical care services for most of the residents, many of whom are nomadic farmers. Support to the facility will go into improving piping of oxygen to the facility and will be critical in reducing patient waiting times in receiving appropriate care.
