WHERE WE WORK
CNIS has implemented life-saving courses in 8 African countries, including Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Uganda, as well as Guyana and Haiti in the Caribbean.
WHAT WE DO
We save lives by creating educational curriculum specific to the needs of low income counties. Canadian surgeons, obstetricians and nurses are trained to teach these courses, and they volunteer their time in travelling to Africa to share lifesaving skills with healthcare students.
