Dr Kamara gains experience at Connaught Hospital, Freetown, Sierra Leone

Sierra Leonean Junior Doctor, Marina Kamara follows up on a suspected kidney infection in one of their patients.

 

Doctor Kamara is just one of the Sierra Leonean medics gaining skills and experience from their British counterparts working at Connaight Hospital.

 

Connaught Hospital was on the frontline of the Ebola epidemic when it hit in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

 

Throughout the crisis, UK aid supported the King's Health Partners team to provide lifesaving care and expertise, with British medics on the ground.

 

Although the outbreak nears its end, it has devastated the health care system across the country.

 

To help beat future outbreaks - and build a better health service - UK aid is helping to build a new Ebola isolation unit at the hospital, redevelop its Accident and Emergency department and support the British medics sharing their skills and expertise with local staff.
