It is no secret that the public health sector in Guyana is in dire need of adequate resources to efficiently address the medical needs of the nation. The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) is no stranger to this deficiency.
In an effort to assist the GPHC to alleviate this, RAD-AID International made a timely donation yesterday of a portable ultrasound machine to the public hospital. RAD-AID is one of the largest radiology aid organisations in the world. Chairing the handing over ceremony was head of the Accident and Emergency Department of the GPHC, Dr. Zulfikar Bux. He told those in attendance, that he had made contact with the organisation to offer assistance in the hospital’s radiology services, specifically in the emergency department. Within months of making contact, the organisation sent representatives to do a site visit in November 2015 to ascertain how much help they can provide.(Kaieteurnews.com/Photo: Kaieteurnews.com)…[+]
