Mercy Ships Multiplies Medical Capacity Across Africa

From primary trauma care training in Cameroon to agricultural mentorship in Senegal, the Mercy Ships Medical Capacity Building program has always aimed at the future.

“When the ship comes in, we do amazing work, but we can't stay there all the time,” said Mercy Ships Interim International Chief Medical Officer Dr. Miriam John. “And it's important that we help to strengthen healthcare systems as part of what we do.”

At the Mercy Ships Africa Celebration this spring Mercy Ships and its partner nations will take that work to the next level with a strategic plan for improved surgical systems across the continent by 2030.
