Bringing brachytherapy to Rwanda Military Hospital
We are working with our partners to build a bunker for public cervical cancer treatment with brachytherapy at at Rwanda Military Hospital.
Target Regions: Kigali, Rwanda
There is currently no public cervical cancer treatment with brachytherapy in Rwanda, so we are building a bunker and installing an HDR unit at Rwanda Military Hospital. At this location we will be providing advanced training workshops for radiation therapists and medical physicists. There are too few medical physicists in Rwanda, so we are working on a collaborative program with other countries with advanced physics program to fill the unmet needs.
