Recommendation report medical/technical charity aid Moldova
In the autumn of 2004, the Urgenta Foundation was approached by ir. Hille, director of the GG&GD Utrecht. On behalf of the Utrecht University, the province of Utrecht, the city of Utrecht and the GG&GD, Mr. Hille is involved in a medical charity project in Moldova. During his first few visits to the Moldovian Hospitals, it became clear that recommendations on management level would not be sufficient. Succeeding depends also on some level of basis quality of medical/technical installations, knowledge and equipment.
Therefore, Mr. Hille requested help from the Urgenta Foundation to assess the current technical status of the hospitals and to come with recommendations concerning the development of medical care from a technical point of view. The Urgenta Foundation gladly accepted this invitation to be involved in medical development aid project in Moldova. A team of four volunteer engineers was formed and left for Moldova on May 5th, 2005. They stayed for four days to carry out an assessment in four hospitals and an outpatient clinic.
The aim of the visit was to assess the medical/technical status of installations, buildings, infrastructure, knowledge and equipment in four hospitals and an outpatient clinic:
- Children's Hospital number 1 (accompanied by director Dr. Serghei st Simco)
- Outpatient Clinic of the Medical Faculty (accompanied by Prof. Victor Vovc)
- Saint Mihail hospital (accompanied by director Dr. Mihai Coibanu)
- Children's Hospital number 2 (accompanied by director Dr. Gheorge Gruso)
- Trinity hospital (accompanied by director Dr. Semion P. Terente)
