It should contain at least the following: a clean sterile environment for small surgical procedures; temperature-controlled space for storing medicinal drugs; an area for nursing care and provision of information on well-being topics; basic wash, toilet and kitchen facilities. The design should demonstrate sensitivity to the tropical surroundings and where possible provide a sustainable solution.
