There's an empty seat for you!
We've got a place for you in this work in  Kosovo Health Technology

How you can help; it’s as easy as A-B-C

ADOPT a Kosovo clinical engineer (CE) or biomedical equipment technician (BMET) group (like a sister city program) or individual (like a big brother program).

Biomedical societies in North America (or elsewhere) are being invited to adopt each of the six major hospital/biomedical engineering teams in Kosovo.  These teams vary in size from 1 to 17 members.  Society members will be encouraged to adopt individual Kosovar CEs or BMETS to come alongside for personal encouragement and professional assistance. This will multiply GAME efforts in Kosovo. To read the bios, click on the title above.


 Join this global group of biomedical professionals & help find answers for daily equipment support challenges.

George Johnston – on-site mentor, the GAME Kosovo volunteer work group, and biomedical team adoptive societies/friends will regularly be identifying equipment challenges and posting questions on this listserv.  Check out this site and compare - do you have other approaches/strategies that can help?

CONTACT us and volunteer to help.  We will find a way to use your talents/expertise.

Neonatal Equipment

Plan to test use of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices for use in neonatal care in that setting.  Approximate cost of $6000 each.  After testing, provide up to 20-25 devices.  Can you help provide the devices or help meet the cost of getting them there?
