Now that the operating rooms are complete the Ghana Hope board is planning a trip in October which will include surgeons and anesthesia staff who will be performing general surgeries and GYN surgeries. Other members of the medical team will provide health screening clinics. They will also develop a plan to support the 14 community based CHPS clinics where most of the outpatient care is delivered.
