Siaya Morgue Renovation

Area of Research

Siaya County


In April 2021, the HJFMRI team provided technical guidance on the renovation of the Siaya County Referral Hospital. The Siaya Morgue was seriously dilapidated, having a leaking roof, worn out and unsanitary floors, and crowded body storage racks. These conditions made it difficult to study specific MITS (Minimally Invasive Tissue Sampling) procedures at the site, and previously required expensive transportation to an alternate facility in Kisumu. The HJFMRI team supervised the entire project to completion, and now that the facility is completed, MITS procedures are being conducted with greater ease and efficiency.
