Gambia

Bansang Hospital_paediatric ward_Gambia_2013_Keith Thompson (1)There are five main hospitals in The Gambia and five additional sites providing surgery. In February 2013 we  worked with the head of anaesthesia at  Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital, Dr Keith Thomson and his ACTS team to equip all the ORs – 40 oximeters in total.

In February 2014 we went back, with thanks again to ACTS, to make sure the monitors were working well.  We were able to test knowledge retention from the training, and answer questions about the oximeter and the work that Lifebox® does.
