Believers get ready to open a medical equipment service center in Indonesia.

By June 3, 2005

Indonesia (MNN)–The Ministry of Health in Aceh Province, Indonesia, asked International Aid to establish a Medical Equipment Service Center.

This center will directly impact the four million people of Aceh Province affected by the tsunami disaster in late December.

The Medical Equipment Service Center will be the first of its kind in the country, making it a showcase model to be used nationally by the Ministry of Health. Inauguration of the MESC is planned for later this month.

The team hopes to see improved delivery of local health services, and an increased hospital capacity. They will also work on improving cost-effectiveness of medical equipment operations.

According to I-A, the plan is that the MESC will also serve as the location for biomedical equipment maintenance on portable equipment for all health facilities in the province that do not have in-house repair and maintenance capabilities.

Hospitals and health facilities in Aceh Province will also benefit from future provision of medical supplies and equipment from International Aid and medical equipment mentoring, as they learn to repair and maintain their own equipment.

I-A responds to Biblical mandates by helping meet the needs of the poor, while at the same time focusing on the Great Commission work.
