We sent a team of doctors in September 2018 to deliver surgical operations to remove tumours from women. We also supported the hospital on several other types of surgery during our stay there.
PAC have recently operated on 50 patients to remove gynecological fibroid tissue (or tumours) while based in Sheikh Sayed Hospital, Nouakchott. We want to schedule future delegations to treat more patients, continue training programmes and develop health initiatives in the region.
PAC also aims to strengthen the capacity of the oncology department to reach more people through the supply of equipment and medicines so that going forward they're able to continue treating the women who have undergone the surgery and many more to come.
Provision of training to healthcare workers for the prevention, treatment and follow up of the disease so that more women can be registered and receive medical care early improving their health outcome for the future.
