Gombe in Pictures

Posted on Jul 6 by

On 13/6/18 our community outreach team traveled to the market town of Gombe. We considered it to be a huge success as over 130 people stopped by to receive our free health services.  In addition to our regular Community Health Workers, nurses, counselors and administrative team, we had the opportunity to accommodate Kelsey Corbin, a Certified Nurses aid from Colorado.   The following pictures and captions depict the day’s events.   Matron (left most) smiles as she takes a look at the camera along with two residents of Gombe as they question about the services we offer. We would like to kindly thank our sponsors, who without we would not have been able to have such a successful community outreach.  So, a special thanks to Jheigo, Mtiba, KMET, Metronics, Odit, and Essilor.  Finally we would also like to thank the Community outreach team members who continue to do an excellent job every week.   Written by Sebastian Karlson    ...

The burden of disease and disability resulting from a lack of anesthesia services is unquestionably staggering. Ketamine is an innovative and safe solution that allows emergency operations to proceed in cases when no anesthetist is available. The ESM-Ketamine project is rapidly growing and we anticipate this to greatly contribute towards addressing the anesthesia gap crisis during public health emergencies. This innovation is in no way meant to replace anesthetic care but offers a stop-gap measure while more permanent efforts are made to address the lack of anesthetists.  In response to this immense problem SCH hosts a Ketamine Week once a month to train providers and regulate the use of Ketamine as an anesthetic. The most recent Ketamine Week took place from May 28th to June 1st, 2018.  SCH was pleased to host ten participants (4 observers and 6 Ketamine Trainees) from Turkana county...
