Netherlands-based Royal Philips Electronics has completed the installation phase of a seven-year project to modernize the healthcare infrastructure of the Republic of Zambia.
Through the program, which is part of the Dutch government’s ORET international development initiative, improvements have been made to 71 hospitals across the country, including the training of over 200 local hospital staff and the creation of a sustainable skills base, according to the company.

The €25 million project included the installation and maintenance of diagnostic imaging equipment including mobile X-ray, fluoroscopy, ultrasound scanners, operating theaters and dental treatment systems, says the company.
