Vaccination post Sangha

Sangha’s modest little hospital performs many vaccinations. Often large groups of mothers and children sit waiting outside in the sun. The hospital and the Dogon Women Initiative together therefore decided to combine the occasion of vaccination with an educational program about nutrition and hygiene. A simple ‘hangar’, surrounded on all sides with benches, with an overhanging roof proofed to be the best solution. Walls of the hangar serve as screens on which short instructional videos can be projected using the miniature Pico-Player beamer. On the front end of the hall are two rooms, one for vaccination and one for medical examination. The façades have been detailed with attractive ventilation-bricks that add to the building’s character.
