Until 2006, among the 160,000 people who live in the district where the King’s Village is situated, there was not a single doctor and there was one nurse for every 6,000 people. The infant mortality rate was 140 for every 1000 live births.

However following an in depth needs assessment and wide community consultation, the King's Village opened a medical centre in April 2006. Beginning with 1 doctor and two nurses, today 3 doctors, 1 pharmacist, 20 nurses,  and over 30 other supporting staff work at the King's Medical Centre. Between them they see over 100 people on an outpatient basis. An emergency block with 60 bed capacity and operating theatre was completed in Janaury enabling the doctors to see over 60 inpatients daily and provide 24/7 emergency services.  

Community Health Workers and Traditional Birth Attendants are also receiving support and training from the centre. A planned third phase of building work will see the development of a maternity wing and more inpatient care.
