Short Term Development Grants

Short Term Development Grants in 2016 : A$15,000


An A$1,500 donation will allow a HEAL Africa Hospital staff professional to visit a tertiary African hospital to observe the processes and practices which provide quality care in their particular field of work, so that such processes can be instituted at the HEAL Africa Hospital.

AusHEAL has already sponsored upskilling for radiographers, physiotherapist, & emergency medical department staff to become proficient in their work at the hospital; as well as a number of nurses including theatre and recovery nurses to provide improved care and maintenance of operating theatre equipment.

Many staff at HEAL Africa Hospital in medicine, nursing and technical areas have little experience of how their field of expertise functions outside of D.R.Congo. These grants are designed to allow them to learn how improvements can be made in their field of work in the African context.
