On July 24, members of the National Assembly’s Health Commission began a series of visits to USAID-funded hospitals in the prefecture of Dubréka, located 50 kilometers from Conakry. The parliamentarians are touring health facilities in 21 prefectures in the Lower, Middle, Upper and Forest regions of Guinea.  The purpose of the tours is to evaluate the conditions of the hospitals, and then make recommendations to the Guinean government  to improve the country’s health system.
