Design RIGHT from the start.

We funded these design projects and worked closely with Build Health International and their design partner, ADAPTIV, to complete them.

The objective of the prototypes is to provide a template for the design, construction and sustainability of health clinics. The prototypes addresses many of the issues that are common in clinics that were not designed or built properly, namely: patient flow and adjacency issues, improper construction materials or techniques, poor ventilation, lack of natural lighting, no design for sustainability (solar & rain H20 Capture) and insufficient, covered public meeting areas.

The Clinic Design Prototype is an outpatient clinic (exam rooms, lab + pharmacy) attached to a maternity wing.  So, partners planning an outpatient clinic can use only the outpatient portion of the prototype.

The Mother & Child Health Post (MCHP) is a smaller, lower cost, fast-build option designed to provide maternity services in underserved rural areas. We expect the MCHP will be also used for Antenatal Care (ANC), Delivery Services, Post Natal Care (PNC), Immunizations, Family Planning & 0-5 age group diagnosis & treatment (outpatient). These services (i.e.; non-maternity) would take place in the meeting area.

Proposed Clinic Design Prototype

Design RIGHT from the start.

These design prototypes address patient flow, adjacencies, ventilation, use of natural light and identify construction and sustainability options.  Site plans, detailed drawings & constructions drawings will have to be completed by local architects and engineers. We will be happy to provide the drawing and rendering files (CAD files) to partners that have a plan in place and funding for the design and construction of a clinic (including the hiring of a qualified architect). 
You can also use this template to develop a customized version of the design to support your clinic design & construction fund raising proposals.
