Interview with dr. Robert Roland on a mission to Botswana at the Medical Tribune! Recommended.
The mission to Botswana is over, within five days our doctors have echocardiographically examined almost 700 people, including 340 children. The entire mission was organized in collaboration with local doctors from the capital, Gaborone, and was the first ever screening of rheumatic heart disease in this country. We found a total of seven pathological findings. All of them were then taken care of, whether in the form of scheduled clinical check-ups, or in two cases the timing of early operations. None of the screened people had been aware of their illness before. Thank you all for your support!
Today it is warmer in the Czech Republic than in Africa more accurately in Botswana, where it is 25 degrees. Ideal for acclimatization of the Czech medical team that has just arrived. The mission plan is simple - to examine 600 people in Maun, north of the country, of which over three hundred will be children from local schools. Czech mission to this magical African country can begin.
