A Ship Hospital for Madagascar’s Isolated Populations Madagascar Foundation (http://www.madagascar-foundation.org) is an American non-profit and Charitable Foundation (501(c)3 ID: 46-1471645) that would like to purchase, renovate, and operate a Ship Hospital for the Island Nation. Ultimately the ship will also serve coastal East Africa and the Indian Ocean. The ship will be called
                                                      "PEDRO   1"  
The Situation In Madagascar, nearly 11 million people lack access to even basic health care. They are plagued by preventable diseases, untreated illnesses, and neglected injuries. Nearly 70 percent of the people have no access to a hospital or doctor. Children, teens, adults, and the elderly suffer and die daily from curable or treatable causes including malaria, diarrhea, and pneumonia. Lack of adequate roads and transportation further exacerbate this problem on the fourth largest island in the world. The Solution A modern ship hospital can service the major ports around the island. More than 60% of Madagascar’s population lives within 100 miles of the coastline, making the ship a practical solution for the majority of the population to access modern health care. A ship is a controlled, safe, and clean environment ideally suited for serving these rural patients. The Pedro I is the most efficient platform to deliver a state-of-the-art hospital to THE ENTIRE island. (http://www.madagascar-foundation.org/ship-hospital/ ) The Demonstration The demonstration of the necessity of the existence of this hospital ship for the future of Madagascar, is the current presence of Mercy Ship Hospital (US charitable Foundation) still in Madagascar for a few months (http://www.madagascar-foundation.org/mercy-ships-in-madagascar/ ) Budget The estimated cost of the ship and renovation is USD 120 million.
