Creating sustainable healthcare in The Gambia
Horizons is a third sector (charity) and private sector (business) collaboration. A social enterprise to improve healthcare in the Gambia through the development of a high quality healthcare infrastructure affordable for all Gambians.
Over the next few years Horizons will focus on: establishing the Horizons Clinic; and charitable activities providing training programmes for healthcare professionals; and reducing maternal and infant mortality through improving outreach services.
The driving force behind Horizons is Professor James N’Dow, leading a team of international business and healthcare professionals. Born in the Gambia, James trained in Aberdeen UK where he is now Professor of Urological Surgery and Director of the Academic Urology Unit. James has travelled to the Gambia every year for the past 12 years, with other UK-trained specialist consultant surgeons, anaesthetists and nurses, to carry out charitable work at the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital.
Horizons is almost ready to start building the Horizons Clinic. We are grateful to The Gambia Government for donating the land. Every donation helps.
