The Cancer Diseases Hospital (CDH) has since inception attended to over 15, 000 cases of cancer from across the country.
CDH Senior Medical Superintendent Dr, Susan Msadabwe says most of these cases are cervical cancer related.
And Dr. Msadabwe says the Hospital is now able to admit patients and comprehensively manage their illnesses following the opening of the in-patient facility this year.
Speaking when NAPSA donated assorted items to the hospital which include stoves,fridges and toys for the children, Dr. Msadabwe says the hospital is still facing challenges such as equipment breakdown as most of the machines are almost reaching their recommended useful lifespan.

Mr. Kachinda says the items include4 stoves, 12 refrigerators’ and other assorted items which will be delivered to the hospital’s Pediatric ward.
