Rural areas have minimal facilities for performing needed surgeries
Many people in Africa have little or no access to healthcare. There are only 2.5 physicians per 10,000 people in Africa, compared to 33.3 physicians per 10,000 in Europe.
Solution: Ship-based NGO brings a surgical center
he Africa Mercy brings volunteer medical teams and sterile operating rooms directly to people who would otherwise go without care.
It’s the world’s largest civilian hospital ship providing state-of-the-art care to those in desperate need—free of charge.
