Stephen and Anna
Medical Ministry in West Africa

Stephen works at a Christian hospital for women and children.  The hospital started about fifteen years ago after prayers by a local church body to find a solution to the many women who died in childbirth.  Now the full-service hospital treats many women, children, and even a few men.  It is part of a larger national NGO that also oversees fourteen clinics in rural areas.  There is currently a multinational blend of ex-pats and national health professionals working at the hospital, yet significant needs remain.  The physical needs in this impoverished country are overwhelming.  The hospital treats children for a wide range of childhood diseases, tropical diseases, malnutrition, cancer, and minor to severe injuries.  In addition to prenatal care and delivering babies, the hospital also cares for women’s general health and provides limited surgical services to men.  

Stephen’s role at the hospital has mainly been to address pediatric care and relieve some of the national physicians' call burden.  A major focus in pediatrics is to improve established protocols and extend physician care. Also, he continues to be involved in teaching both nurses and physicians.  Anna homeschools the children and provides support for the ex-pat team.
