We are very happy and proud that our visit has resulted in a Memorandum of Understanding of 5 years with 4 parties: Gondar University, World Vision, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the Working Party of International Safe Motherhood and Reproductive Health.
During the week of trainings, visits and discussions in June 2015, we have seen that the (medical) staff in and around Gondar is very strong in their enthusiasm and motivated to improve quality of care to women. This gave a huge boost to our motivation, which is still running through our veins.
At the moment we are all working hard to make the future wishes come true: improvement of maternal health by building up a good training system with the gynaecologists of Gondar Hospital, starting up research to measure the expected improvement and to give people the possibility to learn to perform research and write articles as well as working on subspecialty training for better care for women. Many ideas have raised about ICU improvement in combination with research, Health Center upgrading and making a good fellowship. Together we must be able to reach our goals.
Since we have managed to receive a grant from ShareNet (thanks to Marcus with his never ending enthusiasm), we have financial support for the coming year. Together with all parties we need to do our upper best to show ShareNet that the Grant is worth to be continued the coming years. This will help us to give continuous support in Gondar Hospital.
