Regional Programme

Sudan - Khartoum

The Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery in Sudan is at the heart of the Paediatrics and Cardiac Surgery programme we are implementing in Africa and beyond.

The Centre is connected to a network of Paediatric Centres located in the area, where our international cardiologists perform screening missions (Mayo and Port Sudan in Sudan, Bangui in Central African Republic, Goderich in Sierra Leone). We identify the patients who need to be transferred to Sudan to have cardiac surgery and we guarantee the necessary follow-up care for patients who have already been operated on.

In Countries where there are no EMERGENCY facilities, we carry out medical visits in cooperation with local authorities: one of the goals of the project is to foster the relationships between the Countries involved through mutual collaboration with regards to healthcare, in a region marked by decades of conflicts . Also for this reason, the Cardiac Surgery Centre is called Salam, “Peace”.

Patients from 28 different Countries have been operated on at the Salam Center, including Sudan, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Chad, Jordan, Somalia, Burundi, Djibouti, Zimbabwe, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Liberia, Yemen, Italy (Italian citizens temporarily residing in Sudan).
