In November 2013 Sahlgrenska I.C. will participate in the conference Equip´aid – Sharing for a better future. This will be the first international meeting of reference devoted to the improvement of medical equipment support projects for healthcare facilities in the field of international aid. Our International Aid Coordinator, Anders Lygdman, will participate and also deliver a presentation to the conference plenary on the subject: “Region Västra Götaland – an example of a coordinated system for donation of surplus medical equipment for international material aid“
– This is a unique opportunity for us to share our experience and also to learn from others.The conference also shows the interest in international material aid as an important part of the overall development assistance, says Anders Lygdman.
The conference is organised and funded by, among others, the French organisation HUMATEM, the European Hospital and Healthcare Federation (HOPE), the French Hospital Federation (FHF) and the European Union (EU) through Europeaid. It will take place in Chamonix, France, on 19-20 November 2013.
– I hope that this is a further step in the direction of enhanced coordination and improvement of frameworks and methods within the field of international material aid. This will in its turn increase the quality of the assistance and thus have a positive impact for the recipients in terms of both quality and effectiveness, says Lygdman.
