Updating medical teams’ competencies and renovating surgical and hospital facilities
- Several missions are organised each year. Lasting an average of 8 days, they include theoretical courses and surgical interventions. The programme includes training in new operating techniques for maxillofacial, tracheal and general (laparoscopy, resection and oesophageal dilation) surgery. Training workshops in general surgery are also organised.
- La Chaîne de l’Espoir made a financial contribution to the renovation and equipping of Holguin Paediatric Hospital (neonatal surgical unit, conference room, class rooms, doctors’ lounge, and residents’ rooms). Partner hospitals were also furnished with single-use instruments like tweezers or endoscopic surgical instruments.
