Brooklyn Chest Hospital School (Completed, 2011)
The Brooklyn Chest Hospital is the only facility that treats XDR TB patients in the Western Cape. It is a 349 bed hospital and consists of 56 paediatric beds which are usually filled to capacity. Over 60% of these patients are HIV positive. Children treated at Brooklyn Chest Hospital can stay there from 6 months to 3 years and are not able to attend normal school.
In 2011, the SAME Foundation proudly opened the new hospital school which educates approximately 30-40 pupils on any given day.
