Anesthesia in underdeveloped countries: a teaching program.


A unique volunteer anesthesia teaching program in East Africa is described. Its object is to help correct the shortage of anesthesia personnel in underdeveloped countries, characteristically so severe that, in some areas, only 10-15 present of the surgery that should be performed can be performed. The design of this program, with its emphasis on teaching, may prove helpful for establishment of similar teaching programs in other medical disciplines in underdeveloped countries.
