BUILD A SKILLS LAB

The Canadian Network for International Surgery (CNIS) has been teaching lifesaving surgical, obstetrical and nursing skills in sub-Saharan Africa for the past 19 years. Rather than performing operations, our Canadian professional volunteers share surgical skills with African healthcare students, providing them with practical skills that will save lives in their communities.

The magic happens at the surgical skill labs established at the training institutions which CNIS partners with across sub-Saharan Africa. The skills labs are essential for students to receive adequate supervision and mentorship in a stress-free environment to learn and practice their skills. The skills labs provide a highly adaptable workspace for the diverse array of courses taught by CNIS.

The students have the opportunity to hone their skills in a number of practices such as laceration repairs, and gain extensive training in obstetrical skills, including the ability to perform a C-Section, which are critically important for improving maternal health.

In 2005, CNIS opened the first surgical skills lab in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The centre increased Ethiopia’s capacity to train and certify physicians, surgeons and other medical health professionals in obstetrics and surgical procedures. The inauguration of the Addis Ababa skills lab was the first of its kind in Africa.

Since then, CNIS has completed skills labs in Gondar and Jimma, Ethiopia, Mbarara, Uganda, Malawi and Moshi, Tanzania. These centres run continuous courses throughout the year to further strengthen the capacity to teach safer surgery and obstetrics in sub-Saharan Africa.

For $15,000 you can establish a skills lab that will provide student trainees with a myriad of learning opportunities that have significant value for their future as healthcare providers in their communities. We need your help in building these fundamental learning environments to continue the success of CNIS in sharing skills and saving lives.
