We are humbled and extremely grateful for the generosity of everyone at Boeing. This money will go far in allowing us to continue our work in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A heartfelt thank you from all of us at SAO.

OTOLARYNOLOGY (ENT) AT ADDIS ABABA UNIVERSITY

Led by Dr. Sandra Skovlund, the SAO support for this department also continues. Two more of the chief residents from the University of Minnesota spent a week with Dr. Skovlund giving lectures, helping during surgery, and working with the AAU ENT residents.  Additionally, they were actively involved in helping teach a temporal bone drilling workshop that was very well received. Sandra experimented with and donated a Dremel drill for this purpose. This low-cost drill worked well, and during our...

PERITONEAL DIALYSIS

Our efforts to assist in the establishment of Ethiopia’s first peritoneal dialysis program are also showing gratifying results. Unlike hemodialysis, which for the most part must be performed in an inpatient or outpatient health care facility, peritoneal dialysis (PD) can be accomplished in the home setting. For this reason, a successful PD program has the potential to help many many more patients than could ever be possible through a hemodialysis program alone.  For this reason, the...

Expansion Plans for Outpatient Hemodialysis

For some time, SAO has been working closely with our contacts in Ethiopia to establish a sustainable plan for expansion of outpatient hemodialysis. Two encouraging developments that occurred during our most recent trip provide tangible signs of progress. First, after many months of work and negotiation, the Addis Ababa Health Bureau, Ethiopian Kidney Failure Dialysis Charity Organization, and St Paulus and Zewiditu Hospitals, have all accepted SAO’s proposal for structuring the program for the...

I enjoy finding the solutions whether they be in a greasy machine shop in a sketchy part of Addis, or in the...

"I am a Specialty Charge Nurse of ENT and Maxillofacial service in South Tower Surgery at Swedish First Hill. I have been at Swedish for 19 years. I grew up in a country where healthcare is only for the privileged...insurance is a rare word. There's a pinch in my heart to see patients and families tell stories of having their properties pawned to loan sharks because the only way to get access to care is to dole out cash in a bag-it doesn't matter how much pain you have, how big and visible...
