Burkina Faso

It has been since late 2009 that medical personnel of Rainbow for Africa cooperates with the local colleagues at St. Camille Hospital in northern Burkina Faso. Our project in Burkina Faso is mainly directed to train local anesthesiologists in a surgical referral center.For that purpose we have established also synergies with Italian Universities, to allow distance e-learning and to allow local health personnel to attend brief stages in Italian University  Hospitals.Our intervention in Burkina Faso is also aimed at improving the medical equipment available in place, building a new recovery room to allow the patients who underwent surgery to receive a more deep monitoring postoperatively.
