The Nemours/Alfred I duPont Hospital for Children Wilmington Delaware and the Cooper University Hospital, Camden New Jersey have donated medical equipment and supplies to support this project
In collaboration with the leadership at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH), Ituku-Ozalla, Enugu, a team of Pediatric Intensivists, a Pediatric Surgeon, Pediatric ICU Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, Pediatric Residents, and Medical Students from the United States of America visited the campus of the UNTH in September 2019 to install and equip the new 5-Bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
The visiting team also provided a first round of in person training necessary to prepare for the provision of clinical services for critically ill children seeking care at the hospital
Ongoing virtual training with UNTH staff, led by team members, is being provided.
Plans, for Fall 2020, are tentative for the team to provide on site training and mentoring to launch patient care at the UNTH PICU.
