Horizons works in collaboration with other providers of healthcare to increase the capacity and standard of healthcare in the Gambia through provision of much needed education and training.
Horizons Trust Gambia is working currently in partnership with six health facilities and the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare on the Gambia Maternity Cleanliness Champions Initiative to reduce preventable causes of death and ill-health, such as healthcare-associated infections at birth. Horizons will continue this vital infection control training, monitoring and evaluation of outcomes, with money donated by Brussels Airlines Bike for Africa.
In partnership with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, and MRC Gambia Horizons welcomed the World Gastroenterology Organisation to The Gambia in 2014 to lead a Gastroenterology Regional Training Course for the first time for the West African sub-region.
In the future the Horizons Training Institute will develop a full training programme based in the Horizons Clinic for outreach clinic staff and other healthcare professionals in the Gambia. This will be funded by the Horizons charities.
