improves mother and child care in Afrika
As long as ultrasound training in Tanzania is closed due to curriculum reforms, the Foundation's focus will be on strengthening the knowledge and expertise of the current crop of - already trained - ultrasound technicians
Due to the restrictions surrounding Covid19, it was not within the possibilities of the Foundation this year to travel to Tanzania and offer hands-on training.
Regina Namumba, a long-time acquaintance of the Foundation, a highly experienced and well-trained sonographer with whom the Foundation worked fruitfully at the Mount Meru Hospital in Arusha has made herself available to act as a senior hands-on trainer for our sonographers.
Since Regina now lives in Tabora, on the other side of the country, the students have to make a long journey and stay in Tabora for 10 days. The travel, accommodation and training costs are financed by the foundation.
