Outreach Program

Expanding endoscopic services to populations in need worldwide

Conceived in 2003, the program strives to introduce and supplement endoscopic equipment and provide endoscopic training and education in underserved areas of the world.

Following two successful hands-on training courses in 2018 and 2019 on basic endoscopy procedures organized by the World Endoscopy Organization (WEO) and the European Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE), the GI Unit of St Paul’s Hospital and Millennium Medical School (SPHMMS) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia was acknowledged as the first official WEO/ESGE Training Center in Africa.
