AIHT Kicks Off 2019 Perioperative Training with Ambira Sub County Hospital and Homa Bay County Teaching &t Referral Hospital

Posted by on Feb 25, 2019 in AIHT, Events, Recent News | 0 comments

2019 has been a busy year already for the African Institute for Health Transformation (AIHT) at Sagam Community Hospital with us hosting training on Perioperative Procedures which includes our Every Second Matters for Mothers and Babies Ketamine (ESM-Ketamine)™ Anaesthesia Training Program. The focus of this training is to support the strengthening of surgical services across the region as counties focus on opening new theatre and training staff. With a focus on improving the quality of surgical care given including pre-op care, in theatre and post-op care, we also focus on  a life-saving, award-winning safe anesthesia solution in areas of Kenya with limited access to anesthesia services. As Universal Health Coverage (UHC) becomes a priority in Kenya, an important pillar is quality of care and we are proud to support this effort in Kenya.   In January, AIHT  hosted trainees from Ambira Sub-County Hospital in Siaya County, which has just opened a new theatre; while in February, we hosted trainees from Homa Bay County Teaching &  Referral Hospital.  The team from Ambira consisted of 3 Clinical Officers, a Medical Officer, 1 Medical Officer Intern and 2 nurses. In addition, we had 2 nurse anaesthetists from the U.S. that came to observe the January training. The team from Homa Bay consisted of a Clinical Officer Anaesthetist, a Clinical Officer and 3 nurses. In addition to the training, each institution received a Ketamine kit.    This was the second hospital to be trained in Siaya (after the Siaya County Referal Hospital) while this was the first team from Homa Bay. We are excited to have Homa Bay join Kisumu, Siaya, Migori, Wajir, Samburu, Turkana, Mandera and Garissa as counties that have health providers trained under the programme.  So far this year, we completed 27 surgeries successfully as part of the practical training for the participants. We would like the SCH staff for working so hard during this Ketamine Week.  Also thank you to the County Health Management Teams from Siaya and Homa Bay Counties  for supporting their participants who were able to come on short notice and were excellent students.    The AIHT Perioperative and ESM-Ketamine Training Team Our faculty: Javan Imbamba, Clinical Officer, Ketamine...

Sagam kicks off 2019 Outreach Services at Ramula Primary School in collaboration with Rotary Club

Posted by on Feb 25, 2019 in AIHT, Events, Partners, Press/Media, Recent News | 0 comments

It was 9 am as Sagam’s trusty Toyota Landcruiser pulled a health wagon (donated by Jhpiego) into Ramula Primary School. Dust rose in the air during this already hot and dry morning. This was followed by our ambulance that ferried our community health workers plus clinical and administrative team as we joined the Rotary Club of Kisumu (in partnership with our own Rotary Club of Sagam and Lions Club of Kisumu). A team of Rotarians from Kampala had also joined the team plus medical students from Kisumu. This outreach was in support of Rotary Kisumu’s support of Ramula Primary School, which began in May 2018 with the construction of a toilet, and now included painting of various structures at the school. After a hearty welcome by the headmaster, faculty and students (which included a march from the girl scouts), the SCH outreach team set up to provide services such a eye checks (by our community health workers who are trained by Essilor as Vision Ambassadors), clinical review, family planning, blood pressure checks (supported by CHAK’s Health Heart Africa project and Medtronic Labs’ Empower Health and Maisha Mapya projects), HIV screening and testing and cervical cancer screening.   We received 159 patients, 102 received HIV testing and counseling, 90 received blood pressure checks (with 9 referrals), 20 received cervical cancer screening (with 6 referrals), 26 received family planning, 25 received clinical consultation,t 2 bought eye glasses while 1 person registered for M-TIBA. In addition, 75 pupils received a reproductive health talk.  SCH plans to return to conduct a more comprehensive eye camp considering the severe eye problems we diagnosed while there. Once again, many thanks to Philip Oduma of Rotary of Kisumu, the partners, Ramula Primary School, Ramula Community and our own team for a successful...
