Advocacy for a Safer Healing Environment at Makarios Children’s Hospital

Child cancer charities are raising alarms over the potential health risks posed by the construction at Makarios Children’s Hospital in Nicosia. Concerns include dangers of dust, toxic gases, and microparticles that could lead to serious infections like aspergillosis, especially for immunocompromised patients postbone marrow transplant. They are demanding a redesign or halting of construction until safety measures are put in place.
