There is an acute shortage of trained medical engineers in most countries, in Africa most hospitals have large quantities of equipment that does not work - but could work with a little attention.
This new course, run by Kyambogo University and partly sponsored by The Amalthea Trust, will train 20 x engineers a year and will go a long way to ultimately solving the equipment maintenance problems; not just in Uganda but other English speaking countries in Africa - meaning more operations and care can be provided, thus saving lives. Trauma is the single biggest killer in Africa.
