General Facts
Chicuque is a joint operation between the Government of Mozambique and
the United Methodist Church. This cooperation dates from 1986, when the
first cooperation agreement was signed. The Church and the Government
came together to look for ways to continue to make Chicuque a reference
hospital and make it an example of quality public hospitals that serve the
country. The Government and the church share the economic
responsibilities for running the hospital. Chicuque has a capacity for 200
beds and it serves a catchment area of 500,000 people in a radius of 91
miles.  During the recent years, the hospital has grown in the number of
specialized clinical staff, to include the following:



















                                                     
All together we are presently 243 employees. We still face a critical
shortage in the number of general nurses and midwives. The dedication of
all the staff members make it possible to keep chicuque as an icon in the
delivery of healthcare in mozambique. We praise and thank God all our
friends who support us.
WE THANK GOD EVERYTIME WE REMEMBER YOU!
