Sahlgrenska I.C. on site to assess recipient in Tanzania
Sahlgrenska I.C:s International Aid Coordinator Anders Lygdman is back in Sweden after a joint field trip to Tanzania with partner organization Human Bridge. The main purpose of the journey was to follow-up and assess the Nkinga Referral Hospital located in Tabora County in the western parts of Tanzania. The hospital has since 2010 been a major recipient of medical equipment donations from Human Bridge and thus also from the Region of Västra Götaland.
The Next Step in Swedish Health Care Export
The Swedish government launched an export strategy in September last year. The work to implement it has already started and actions plans for prioritirized export sectors are to follow. Today Care companies and Swecare Foundation meet with Karin Olofsdotter, Head of the Promotion of Sweden and EU Internal Market, and Niclas Jacobsson, Deputy Director-General at Ministry of Health and Social Affairs. Discussions about Swedish health care export today and steps forward to create an environment where it can grow are on the agenda.

Follow up with Norway
Today we are in Norway for a meeting with the international department at Oslo University Hospital, Helse Sør-Øst. Sahlgrenska I.C. has an agreement with all the regional health care authorities in Norway. Over the years, this collaboration has made it possible for many norwegian patients to receive higly specialized care at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in medical areas where the experience is limited in Norway. Multivisceral transplantation surgeries, bone anchored amputation prosthesis and craniofacial surgeries are a few examples of the treatments offered.
All collaborations need to be evaluated from time to time to ensure that they live up to the high quality standards that both parties have. This is the aim with the visit today. We look forward to having a good discussion about the collaboration so far and how it can be evolved going forward.
Sahlgrenska's Director Barbro Fridén leader of the year
The business news magazine Affärsvärlden has appointed Barbro Fridén, Director of Sahlgrenska University Hospital, leader of the year.
Enthusiasm, courage and dedication characterizes her leadership, according to the jury. A lot has happend since she took office 2012. Throughout these years she has been advocating the implementation of a value based approach with a patient centred focus. It is now underway, but we have to await the outcome of this approach as more clinics at Sahlgrenska University Hospital adopt the model. Regardless, it is already an admirable achievement considering the size and complexity of the organization.
Congratulations Barbro, Sahlgrenska University Hospital and Region Västra Götaland! We look forward to keep on working closely to ensure that Sahlgrenska University Hospital continues to be renowned internationally for it’s world class research and development within highly specialized care.

They are a link between different stakeholders in the health care area contributing to the process from an innovative idea to a market ready solution or product.
Way forward after 2nd Round Table on Medical Equipment
The first European conference on medical equipment in low-income countries was held in Chamonix in 2013. Eventually this evolved into a group with representatives from a few chosen countries and organizations dedicated to take these questions to a higher level. Over time the network wants to affect the regulatory framework surrounding this field.
