A Strategic Solution: Mentor African Physicians as Surgeons in Order to Share the Gospel
The solution for Togo is to train African physicians as surgeons to meet the surgical and spiritual needs of this country. Ten percent of adult deaths and 20% of pediatric deaths could be avoided with surgical intervention. The Lancet Commission on Global Surgery estimates that 30% of all medical problems require surgical involvement.
To meet this need, a surgical training program has been developed at Hospital of Hope in Mango, Togo. This PAACS training site is training African Christian surgeons to provide compassionate care to their patients.
This fund supports the operation of the PAACS program in Togo and provides sponsorship of the PAACS residents training at Hospital of Hope.
