Ghana

We are fortunate to be working with some amazing people across Ghana; from Dr Thomas Anabah at Tamale Teaching Hospital (who trains nurse anaesthetists from across the country), to Dr Paul Ofori-Atta and Jane Jackson from the UK charity MOTEC and everyone involved in the ongoing partnership between Ghana Health Service (GHS), Afrikids NGO and Southampton University Hospitals Trust.

We have now distributed over 400 oximeters to Ghanaian ORs, the last 320 in a collaboration with Ghana Health Service and Ghana Association of Nurse Anaesthetists which saw 164 anaesthesia providers receive training in oximetry and the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist at a one-day workshop on 4 October 2013.
