#WCALifebox – UK and Uganda

We took our first steps in Uganda back in 2011, making an initial donation of 80 pulse oximeters to the Association of Anaesthesiologists of Uganda (AAU) thanks to the generosity of our co-founder the Association of Anaesthestists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI). Since then we’ve collaborated with both the AAU and AAGBI to deliver essential training and equipment to support anaesthesia providers on the frontline of surgical and anaesthetic care. In 2015, we launched our first Lifebox Fellowship with a six month anaesthetic trainee post to support clinical practice and quality improvement work at Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital.
