The week-long course was held at the Beit CURE International Hospital in the city of Blantyre, a facility that Nuffield Orthopaedic Surgeon Professor Chris Lavy helped to establish during his time working in the country in the early 2000s.
The training was part of the ongoing £1.4m COSECSA Oxford Orthopaedic Link (COOL) project to improve child healthcare across East, Central and Southern Africa that has seen medical specialists from Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust help train more than 400 African counterparts in the past nine months. The next course will be held in Kenya in early 2014.
