A Telemedical link has recently been set up to a hospital in Burkina Faso, West Africa. This will be our 330th Telemedical link in 76 countries!
Paam Laafi is a newly built community hospital currently with a team of 5 Doctors, 5 Nurses and a Dentist. They only have 3 beds at present but are in the process of developing further. Most of the work is currently outpatient which includes mobile clinics to local Schools. The services they provide is Cardiology, Dentistry and Family Planning with Antenatal care coming soon. Their availability to drugs is good and they aim to make care affordable for all. There is a social fund for complex cases and for those that cannot pay.
We look forward to working with this hospital and keeping up to date with its progress.
