Libreville 03.06.2014

His Majesty the King Mohammed VI and Gabonese President Ali Bongo Ondimba visited, on Thursday March 6, 2014 the Agondjé University Hospital Center (CHU) in Libreville.


During the visit the two Heads of States visited the Libreville Cancer Treatment Institute, located at the Agondjé University Hospital Center (CHU), north of the Gabonese capital.

Details were given to the sovereign on this ultramodern Cancer Treatment Institute, carried out in partnership with the Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment.

Built at the Agondjé CHU at the initiative of the Sylvia Bongo Ondimba Foundation, the new health facility is an achievement in terms of providing on-site health care to cancer patients and improvement of medical services in Gabon.

The Institute is meant to offer high-quality services to cancer patients, facilitate access to health care, promote all medical disciplines relating to cancer diagnosis and treatment, and develop scientific research on cancer.  

A Moroccan medical staff is tasked with training and providing health care at the Institute.

The facility, which seeks, on the long run, to turn Gabon into a leader in Central Africa in the fight against cancer, includes a technical ward and a hospitalization ward of 18 beds.

The technical ward comprises a radiotherapy department, a nuclear medicine department, an outpatient chemotherapy unit, a unit of medical physics, a biomedical maintenance unit and a histopathology and tumor biology laboratory.

The institute also includes two linear particle accelerators, a gamma camera SPECT CT, a scanner simulator 16 bars, a hot laboratory for preparation of radiopharmaceuticals and 8 chemotherapy seats.

His Majesty the King also visited the departments of pediatrics, gynecology and obstetrics, and maternity.

 The Institute has four operation rooms (including neurosurgery and cardiac surgery), a laboratory (hematology, parasitology, immunology serum), a medical imaging, a central sterilization unit, and an outpatient clinic (pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology).

 It has also departments specialized mainly in cardiology, dermatology, ENT, hepatogastroenterology, neurosurgery, surgery, neurology, ophthalmology, urology, stomatology, and dietetics.

The facility, which has a capacity of 160 beds, comprises also a pharmacy and technical departments.

Earlier, the two leaders toured the hospital's departments, including the Cancer Treatment Institute which was carried out in partnership with the Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment and the Sylvia Bongo Ondimba Foundation.

 The Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment provided the Libreville Cancer Treatment Institute, permanently, with radiotherapists, physicists and technicians.

 The Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment had, previously, trained in Morocco 10 Gabonese specialist physicians and 30 technicians, set up the program of breast and cervical cancer detection and prevention and granted a consignment of medicine for children with cancer.
