Namibia government has approved a fund worth about N$27 million for the construction of a modern neonatal unit and a mothers’ shelter at Swakopmund.
According to the Prime minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadh, this facility will go a long way in ensuring the survival of new-born children in the Erongo region, especially those born prematurely and at risk of dying in the absence of such specialised care as a neonatal unit can provide.
The neonatal unit is expected to have 28-bed capacity which will be divided into 12 standard care beds, six high-care beds, six intensive care beds and four isolation unit beds. It will also have doctors’ consulting rooms as well as on-call rest rooms.
Meanwhile, construction of the facility is expected to be completed by February 2022.
