Participating in the delegation were thirteen representatives from Regionservice, the dedicated department within the Region Västra Götaland for common services and, in addition, also one of our major donors of surplus medical equipment. The purpose of the visit was to enhance the knowledge on how Human Bridge operates and to share experiences and ideas on how to further improve the cooperation.
The programme included information and sharing sessions and also a well prepared visit in the warehouses. In this, we had the opportunity to study how donated medical equipment are maintained and reconditioned in preparation for being sent as development assistance, mainly to healthcare institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa.
