(TAP) - The Sadok Mekkadem regional hospital in Djerba Houmet Souk (Medenine) now has a new emergency department that went operational on Sunday, February 10.

Due to a lack of personnel, the department with the necessary equipment remained closed for several years until the Ministry of Health recruited 22 medics and paramedics bringing the number of team members to practice within this unit to 13 doctors and 45 paramedics, said hospital director Salem Aissa.

The department, created with a budget of two million dinars, is the first of its kind in Tunisia and Africa.

It is equipped with advanced equipment that meet international standards, which enables its staff to make a good diagnosis and digitise the patient record from admission to final medical decision-making, he said.
