THE STORY:

I am an anesthesiologist from the Univ. of Utah who has been teaching and providing patient care for the past 17 years at the KATH Hospital in Kumasi Ghana. I have joined an Outreach Surgery/Medical group (Apridec.org) a totally Ghanaian driven group of specialist volunteers started in 2010 who have been providing free surgical and medical care for patients in the poorest areas of Ghana (Upper East and Upper West). The productivity of this organization is unmatched in any health care delivery system (also providing education) I have ever seen. My first trip to Upper East -290 surgeries in 5 hospitals in 4 days (in 2015 -320 of all types of surgeries) and to Upper West this past April 3-9th- 389 surgeries in 7 hospitals in 5 days. I am asking for funding for transportation, lodging and food for the volunteers and support to purchase anesthesia medications, antibiotics and consumables and patient monitors like a finger pulse oximeter.
