Interplast Back in Yemen [Archives:1998/13/Local News]

March 30 1998

An Interplast Holland team is currenly visiting Yemen to do free-of-charge plastic surgery in the Thawra and Kuwait hospitals in Sanaa. During their last visit to Yemen, the Inrerpalst team did about 130 plastic surgeries, mainly to children suffering from burns, harelip, and other congenital defects which cannot be treated by Yemeni doctors.
Interplast has recently signed a five-year agreement with the Yemeni government whereby a team of plastic surgeons will visit Yemen twice every year to conduct operations and provide training for Yemeni doctors.
This visiting team consists of 3 surgeons, 1 anesthetist, 2 operation assistants, and 1 coordinator.
Next time there will be two teams from Interplast – one to Sanaa, and the other to Aden.
