Building Medical Excellence in Africa Also Means Investing in People, Who Will Put Their Skills at the Disposal of Their Patients

Our colleagues at the Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery in Khartoum have welcomed a team of doctors and nurses from the Uganda Heart Institute to Sudan. By working side-by-side and undergoing specialist training, the Ugandan medics will be able to return to their home country having gained further knowledge and strengthened key skills.

“Thanks to the Regional Programme in Africa, we can not only treat adults and children from all over the continent free of charge, but also develop a series of collaborations and trans-regional agreements with facilities and training institutions.

Thus, we transfer to new generations the know-how they need to ensure high levels of care and cutting-edge treatment,” said Luca Rolla, EMERGENCY’s Regional Programme Manager.

Building medical excellence in Africa also means investing in people, who will put their skills at the disposal of their patients, and continuing our mission: ensuring the health and rights of people across the continent.
