Campaign +Q1 Seed 2013

This past month of June our organization held together, with the collaboration of the Consorci Sanitari Integral, the University of Barcelona (UB), the National University of Equatorial Guinea (UNGE), the Regional University Hospital of Bata and the European Baptist Mission (EMB), the 2nd Congress of Medical Sciences and Health. The course has been carried out in the grounds of the Bata Hospital.

This conference, like the one established in July 2012, aimed to doctors, nurses and students has had the objective to motivate the participants to initiate long-term continuity programs and at the same time, provide specific training on various health subjects such as psychology, nursing, prevention of nosocomial infections, trauma, general surgery, anesthesiology, pediatrics, dentistry, ophthalmology, internal medicine, otolaryngology and gynecology. An extended agenda developed by a group of 26 Spanish volunteers, in each one of the medical services of Bata Hospital, allowed to integrate the training and attendance between the local personnel, the Cuban medical brigade and the +QS volunteers in a didactic way.

Since the objective of +QS is to promote health from a holistic perspective, the spiritual part was also present in the form of various workshops and conferences in collaboration with local churches and the Baptist Mission.

The travel experience could not be more satisfying. Despite working long hours, and sometimes, the poor conditions found, we have managed to achieve the goals. The response from students and local health staff has been very positive and interesting contacts have been established for the future, what without doubt will allow us more accurately to define the Strategic Training Plan that +QS is developing.

We invite you to see the photos below so you can get a better idea of what this project has meant.

Many thanks to all those who have contributed their seed for this project! While we went with the intention of leaving our seed, upon returning, that seed is growing in ourselves every day.
