Haiti – Hope Health Action

Great to have Sean and Rob back after two and a half weeks away in Haiti running a compressed BioMedical Engineering course for Hope Health Action, a UK based charity that does great work in Haiti (as well as other places). See https://hopehealthaction.org/

We have had the privilege of working with the team for a few years and have sent a lot of equipment over to their hospitals including a digital X ray system, autoclave and general hospital equipment.

So it was great to run this course for the local engineers as having BioMedical support is so vital. All passed their theory and practical exams.

It is very important that when we train BioMedical Engineers that we also equip them properly with the basic test equipment and professional tools. This investment pays off! If you do not there is little point in training them as they need the resources to do their work, otherwise it is a bit like training someone to drive so they can run a transport business but not giving them a vehicle afterwards.

Looking forward to working with our great friends at Mercy Ships as our next two, eight week programmes in Cameroon start in September. A wider scale and very exciting initiative.
