Save Our Hospitals Zimbabwe (SOHZ) has received the list for the immediately required medical drugs and medical consumables for United Bulawayo Hospitals from its clinical director, Dr Narcisious T B Dzvanga, the document is attached below.
The first column is the product description, the second column is the unit of measurement and the third and last column has the amount of units that UBH consumes per month per product.
Whilst we are grappling with Cyclone Idai, let us remember that these referral hospitals will be the last points of treatment for citizens that are seriously ill.
So let us look at the lists that I have put out so far for UBH, Harare and Parirenyatwa Hospitals and see where we can help them in order for doctors and nurses to be able to do their work.
Once our website is ready we will also post this information for your easy accessing.
We will also post the hospital lists on the SOHZ Telegraph Group in PDF form.
The joining link for the SOHZ Telegraph is Group is:
So here is what we need to do now, you look at the attached list, you chose what you want to buy for UBH or to donate towards buying.

Thank you once more for the overwhelming interest in getting our hospitals working again.
Our Hospitals, Our People, Our Lives!
