In Kenya, Amref's Flying Doctors

RImage MARSABIT KENYA - FEBRUARY 18: AMREF (African Medical Research Foundation)Doctor Charles Maina Nderitu, 38-years-old perform surgery on a patient whom is believed to need an hysterectomy at the Marsabit Hospital on February 18, 2011 in Marsabit, Kenya. Later on the woman was dismissed after her abdomen was cut and open and the hysterectomy not performed due to a wrong interpretation of the echograph done the day before the scheduled surgery.She didn't need a surgery. Gynaecologist doctor Maina lives and works in Makueni, 140 kilometres from Nairobi. He studied for 10 years in Nairobi and has volunteered his services to AMREF for two years now. One week every two or three months he joins the Outreach team: he is often sent to different locations where he examines patients, conducts surgery, and trains personnel. The African Medical Research Foundation's (AMREF) Outreach Programme serves more than 150 rural hospitals in Eastern Africa. Rural hospitals are visited two to six times a year in order to provide specialized health care services to under-served communities. The Outreach Programme uses AMREF's light aircraft on planned, regular flights. Medical specialists are drawn from AMREF and from the university teaching hospitals in Eastern Africa. The twenty three types of specialists are selected based on the requests from the rural hospitals. Run-down health care facilities, the poor transportation network, insufficient staff levels, and lack of supplies and equipment all contribute to inadequate access to and utilization of quality health care for rural communities. Moreover, rural health care facilities face a high turnover of doctors and other qualified health workers. These factors drive the great demand for outreach services. AMREF's Flying Doctors meet this need. Thanks to AMREF's Outreach Programme, more than 26,000 patients are treated and more than 7,000 operations are carried out every year .(Photo by Marco Di Lauro/Getty Images Reportage)
