Go Doc Go had a busy May trip to Senegal and The Gambia. In Senegal, we donated LEEPs to the hospitals in Richard Toll and Mbao, as well as a thermal ablation unit in to Camberene. Additionally, we donated 1000 HPV tests to Saint-Louis hospital as well as 1000 tests and a thermal ablation unit to hospitals in Banjul, The Gambia.
In total, we trained 41 midwives and screened just under 500 women!
The positivity rate for HPV testing in Banjul is an astonishing 34% and is also very high in Saint-Louis at 22%. These rates demonstrate how important HPV testing and VIA screening is in both countries.
We return to Senegal on September 16th working in new locations and bringing equipment and supplies where they are so urgently needed.
Please enjoy this wonderful video that was filmed by Alex Adams during our trip to Senegal in June 2022, it really shows what a clinic day in Senegal looks like!
Tambacounda Hospital 2022
The new Tambacounda Hospital is officially open! This beautiful design by Manual Herz was funded by our partner, Le Korsa and is a much needed addition for pediatrics and maternity.
Dr. Matt Lewis filmed this wonderful video explaining what services Go Doc Go provides and why the need for cervical cancer screenings is so great in underdeveloped countries.
He shot most of the live footage during our April 2019 trip to Ethiopia when Go Doc Go brought thermocoagulation units to hospitals in both Adama and Gondar.
