There is a large construction site in the middle of Banfora: the regional hospital. The state of Burkina Faso (West Africa) has provided 4.5 billion CFA, about seven million Euro, for the construction of the new medical facility. The first buildings were put into operation in 2003. However, the proportion of completed areas is in balance with the construction sites. And much more is more makeshift than optimal equipment: such as the operating room of the gynecological ward, which is set up, but has never been used because some installations were connected incorrectly. The patients must therefore be taken from the station by car 300 meters further over the dusty terrain into the only usable operating room of the complex.
