New $22M Hospital Never Opened In Madagascar After Political Upheaval

The Guardian: Health in Madagascar takes turn for the worse as $22m hospital abandoned
“…The hospital was almost complete, with just the morgue unfinished, when work suddenly stopped in 2012. A large metal fence was erected around the perimeter and a security guard installed to keep the public out. This $22m (£17m) hospital in Menabe, west Madagascar, was a pet project of former president Marc Ravalomanana, who was ousted in 2009, but the initiative was not continued under President Hery Rajaonarimampianina, despite the dire need for improved health services in the area…” (Ghouri, 8/3).
