The African continent still holds only 3% of the world’s health personnel and in Uganda there are 1.7 doctors and 13 nurses / midwives for every 10,000 inhabitants (UNDP 2016 data).
Faithful to the Comboni ideal of “Saving Africa with Africans”, Ambrosoli Foundation firmly believes in the importance of qualified training for local staff: working with people, supporting their professional growth and development of skills to promote the achievement of the necessary management autonomy and to contribute to the progress of the country.
According to this vision, the Foundation has undertaken activities and training courses for staff and local management through:
New partnerships aimed at the growth of human capital.
For instance, the partnership with Idea Onlus and the University of Turin in order to send medical specialists to support the hospital’s staff, promote the exchange of good practices, mutual training, and the strengthening of the medical staff dedicated to the various departments.
Support the training of doctors and midwives, through the funding of scholarships in local universities and training facilities.
Support missions of expatriate highly qualified medical personnel especially in the paediatrics and neonatology departments to improve the health service quality and the specific training of departmental personnel.
