The Nzara Mission Hospital is managed by the Comboni Missionary Sisters, a religious order from Italy. Nzara Mission Hospital provides general, maternal, child and infant medical care. Major illnesses are malaria, gastrointestinal disorders and complications arising from TB and HIV/AIDS. All the hospital departments are involved in fighting the complications which often accompany malaria, affecting especially children under 5 years of age. Immune sup- pressed patients are also affected as well as expecting mothers. Nzara Blood Transfusion Service and the availability of effective antimalarial drugs have greatly contributed in reducing the life threatening consequences of this terrible disease.
