Rwanda

Thanks to generous support from the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society’s International Education Foundation we have been able to send 250 oximeters to Rwanda. This was complemented with oximetry and Checklist training for 120 anaesthesia providers during January 2013, and ongoing support for checklist use and improvement work during 2013.

Kibagabaga Hospital outside Kigali has been the pilot site for our checklist implementation package – it was also the focus of an August 2013 BBC World piece.
