Zewditu Memorial Hospital in Addis Ababa. The hospital is one of twenty public medical facilities in the Ethiopian capital. It admits tens of thousands patients annually. He could do more, if not for the lack of specialized medical equipment. The dialysis department has only three devices and more then 1,000 patients waiting for medical help. The pediatric neurosurgical unit suffers from a lack of important operating materials leading to delivery of poor quality service and also contributing for delayed surgical interventions.
