We need a dedicated pediatric cardiac hospital so that we can not only treat patients, but also act as a centre of excellence, for the training of healthcare professionals and promoting research into the causes and management of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). In turn, increasing the number of pediatric cardiac related healthcare professionals and fulfilling the need for more trained healthcare professionals in the country, allowing other centres to improve their pediatric cardiac programme.
