According to General Richard B. Myers, retired Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and MediSend Advisory Board member, "One of the most difficult challenges that Afghanistan faces in community health is the lack of skilled human resources in the area of trained technical personnel. MediSend has a focused program that will help overcome this challenge in hospitals and clinics in Afghanistan."

The Afghanistan Health and Human Resource Initiative will train Afghan nationals in MediSend's Biomedical Repair Program to return to their community hospitals and clinics with the skills to install, maintain and repair life-saving biomedical equipment. MediSend will also provide each graduate trainee's hospital with MediSend's Mobile Biomedical Equipment Test and Repair Kit(TM). Ongoing customer and technical support for the participating hospitals and clinics is a major part of the program.

"We are proud to present a program that will make a positive difference in the lives of many thousands of men, women and children in Afghanistan," says Nick Hallack, President and CEO of MediSend International adding, "To be a part of The Clinton Global Initiative with the opportunity to share ideas and explore solutions with other like-minded organizations will further inspire and reinforce our commitment."

Partnering organizations such as The Exxon Mobil Corporation, Philips Medical Systems, Phoenix Data Systems (AIMS.NET(R)), Nida Corporation, Baylor Health Care System, International SOS, Dikembe Mutombo Foundation, Mercy Ships, Save the Children, Broadlane and National Freight Industries enable MediSend to implement programs such as The Afghanistan Health and Human Resource Initiative worldwide.
