Sulayman Junkung General Hospital

Hospital Administrative Staff Co-op

Sulayman Junkung General Hospital is a 150 bed facility located in the town of Bwiam, in The Gambia, West Africa. With an ever growing patient load, SJGH is struggling to both identify the various needs and opportunities to improve patient health care and to find outside funding sources. Current government funding levels are not adequate to meet the hospitals growing needs. SJGH is unique in The Gambia in being the only hospital largely powered by a solar energy system built with the help of Power Up Gambia, a Philadelphia based nonprofit.
