Dr Mpoki Ulisubisya, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Health in Tanzania, will attend this year’s SFAI (Swedish Association of Anaesthesia & Intensive Care) conference in Karlstad, Sweden on the 21-23 of September. Dr Mpoki was one of the first doctors to be trained as an Anaesthesiologist in Tanzania and he will be the main speaker at the symposium in Global Anaesthesia & Intensive Care organised by Life Support Foundation.
Mpoki– It is an honour and a privilege that Dr Mpoki will attend the 2016 SFAI conference. He will give a unique insight into the practice of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care in Tanzania and globally, and how the specialty adapts when resources are limited, says Dr Tim Baker, Chairman of Life Support Foundation. – We hope that he will enthuse and inspire the SFAI delegates to get involved in Global Anaesthesia & Intensive Care, either to take part in our activities or to become engaged in other global organisations.
Life Support Foundation has a well-established relationship with Dr Mpoki. He was Head of Department at Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salaam when Life Support Foundation began collaborating with Tanzania. He welcomed the partnership with Sweden, and coordinated many of the projects. He also came to Sweden on an exchange visit in 2011.
