In 2008, the Chinese Government agreed to provide a $10 million USD grant to the Government of Guinea for Phase 1 of the Sino-Guinean Friendship Hospital Construction Project. This project involved the construction of a 120-bed, “Class A” specialist hospital with cardiology, neurology, radiology, acupuncture and rehabilitation, thoracic surgery, therapeutic surgery, orthopedics, general surgery, brain tumor surgery, emergency, and resuscitation units as well as housing of Chinese medical teams. On April 28, 2008, representatives from a Chinese design firm and the Guinea Ministry of Health had a preliminary design meeting in Wuhan for this hospital. Sichuan Huashi Overseas Investment & Engineering Co., LTD was the contractor responsible for implementation. Construction began on March 31, 2009 and ended on July 25, 2010. The first phase of the project was then officially handed over to the local authorities on April 13, 2011. Then, in 2017, the Chinese Government provided an RMB 100 million grant for Phase 2 of the Sino-Guinean Friendship Hospital Construction Project (#64425). Phase 2 involved the construction of several surgical and intensive care units and well as the provision and installation of medical equipment, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners. Sinohydro Bureau 3 Co. Ltd. was the contractor responsible for implementation. Construction began on November 1, 2018 and an official groundbreaking ceremony took place on December 7, 2018. The originally expected completion date was April 30, 2020. However, it is unclear if Phase 2 has reached completion. As of November 28, 2019, the project had achieved a 70% completion rate. The project may have experienced delays because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
