Education is key in Masanga. Having been a Capa Care (https://capacare.org/) training center for over a decade, this small district hospital is entering a new phase. It has become a referral center, a research unit has been added and its laboratorium has expaned impressively. And technically inspiring; in 2023 the hospital has switched to solar power.
Masanga Hospital continues to educate surgical and pediatric students. Recently medical trainees have started their rotations. Together with the government and external partners Masanga is dedicated to empowering the local health care staff. (https://www.masangahospital.org/)
