Africa Health Care Costs

I was at the hospital today and snapped this picture. I thought you might enjoy having some fun with it. Just move the decimal point two spaces to the left and you will have estimated the cost of these procedures in US dollars.
One of my Kenyan friends told me that he has known of Americans coming to Kenya for health care because the cost of their airfare, surgery, and vacation is less than what a simple operation costs in the states.

    Well, now, those are some fancy prices. Does that include bandaids? Room and board? Seriously, are those simply the prices for the surgical team, and everything else is exta?

      lol, I know. Unfortunately, these prices do not include the instruments needed to complete the surgery–which the patient is responsible for buying before hand.

    Question. What is a “surgical toilet???”

    Sure am enjoying your blog and learning about how Mattaw Village works. Do you have a 501(c) (3)

    I have no clue, but I assume it is a way of cleaning out an infected wound.
