Help us fund a c-arm x-ray machine for better trauma care in Ethiopia

The Hawassa University Comprehensive Specialized Hospital in Ethiopia needs a c-arm (image intensifier) for the trauma and orthopedic (T&O) division. The T&O surgeons (pictured above) at the hospital operate over 1,500 patients annually.

Join us in raising USD 35,000 to buy a new c-arm with our partners, Australian Doctors for Africa, and the Northwest Orthopaedic Trauma Alliance for Africa, costing USD 105,000. Hawassa University will cover the VAT and import duties.

This campaign builds on AO Alliance’s earlier investment in the T&O team in Hawassa and strengthens the broader capacity building Ethiopia Country Initiative to improve fracture care.

All necessary measures to guarantee proper equipment functioning and maintenance are in place.

Your donation supports better patient care by:
  • Enhancing capacity of a key hospital serving 18 million
  • Preventing amputations and lifelong disabilities
  • Simplifying complex surgical procedures
Donations are tax deductible in Switzerland.
