The CCAP Synod of Livingstonia Health Department was established in 1990 to coordinate the Synod Health Services which are offered by the 3 hospitals,12 Health Centers and 1 health Post in the Synod catchment area. The Synod Health Department operates in 4 of the 6 Northern Region Districts and its services are offered in the hard to reach areas. The role of the Coordination Office is to ensure that hospitals are meeting the standards of heath care provided in these areas. This can be accomplished if there is proper supervision and collaboration between the office and all Synod Health Facilities. The Coordination Office is also a Technical Advisor of the Synod Secretariat on health related issues.
