Mercy Ships Ensures That Liberian Technicians "know how to fix it"
Date:11/14/2008

udents to the need for trained biomedical engineers in Liberia. Information was given about which universities offered programs and how to apply for scholarships, and attendees were encouraged to remain in Liberia to work.

A total of 99 Liberians attended the workshops and visited the ship to see the cutting-edge medical equipment onboard.

Saki Golafale, a workshop participant, said that he now can see a need for such professionals. "I only know one biomedical engineer in Liberia, and he is aging," said Golafale. "That gap needs to be filled."

Additionally, Amaral compiled a Report of Biomedical Infrastructure in Liberia for the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, suggesting ways to improve working conditions, maintenance, procedures, and personnel qualifications in Liberia's major medical facilities after Mercy Ships leaves in December.

Based on the success of the initial Mentoring Biomedical Technicians program, Amaral hopes to increase the number of participants from to one to two per hospital during future port visits.

Meanwhile, this program leaves behind a legacy of hope and ongoing care in Liberia when the Mercy Ship moves on to the next port of call in Cotonou, Benin.
