A huge congratulations to Felege Hiwot Referral Hospital (FHRH) in Ethiopia on being awarded Best Performing Hospital in the country!
On March 28th, in the presence of over 2,500 people at the African Union Conference Hall, including country-wide representatives from all health sectors, FHRH received the prestigious recognition along with grant from the Vice Prime Minister and Minister for the Ministry of Health.
Soapbox entered into a formal partnership with FHRH in 2014 with the aim of working towards improving infection prevention and control at the hospital. The hospital passed the first step for the National Lead Hospital Competition in September 2014. Dr Siyoum Enkubahiri, who recently made a visit to Aberdeen to further our ongoing partnership, reported that “finally the last two years’ dream of the hospital has become successful”.
We were delighted to hear this excellent news and offer our warm congratulations to our Ethiopian colleagues. We look forward to working together to continue making further improvements to the hospital in the coming years.
