Exploratory mission to Madagascar

Exploratory mission to the University Hospital Center (UHC) in Antanarivo, Madagascar:
The exploratory mission to Madagascar took place June 9-13, 2011. The anaesthesiologist Dr. Jacquemet and the surgeon Dr. Gardini evaluated the feasibility of organizing a future mission to Antanarivo. Their evaluation was very positive; all of the Madagascan teams showed interest in participating in the project. It was found that anaesthetic and surgical materials are extremely lacking. We are going to send a crate filled with equipment in October to help remedy the situation and the mission will start in November. We will keep you updated!
