Here you can learn about the work that Dolen Cymru does in the health field in Lesotho.
The health needs of Lesotho are huge – with 23% of the population living with HIV/AIDS, TB rates are very high with increasing multi-resistant strains and there is a growing public health risk with diabetes. With such statistics Dolen Cymru’s health work can really make a difference.
Working with the support of the Ministry of Health our work has encompassed mental health training (mhGap) and working with partners in Wales to deliver midwifery training and support, emergency care training and reciprocal visits. Village health worker decision aides have been developed in partnership with the local teams.
Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has a link with Quthing Hospital and Quthing District Health Team sealed with a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Lesotho. Ideas flow in both directions!
A new link between the National Health Training College and Bangor University's School of Healthcare Sciences will bring together students and lecturers to share expertise from both countries.
