Addressing contextual severe healthcare problems, like the outbreak of infectious diseases or maternal mortality, MASS has helped in setting design strategies to mitigate and reduce critical medical concerns. With some projects operational, and others in the pipeline, the facilities imagined, tackle a wide range of complications. In Haiti, MASS created the GHESKIO Cholera Treatment Center, a 100-patient treatment center that provides dignified care and on-site wastewater management; as well as the GHESKIO Tuberculosis Hospital, a facility that assures long term care for patients with tuberculosis. On the African continent, the studio’s interventions generated the Butaro District Hospital in Rwanda, helping in reducing the transmission of airborne diseases; and the Maternity Waiting Village in Malawi, completed in 2015, a prototype structure where expectant mothers can stay and receive proper care until their delivery.
