IVUmed first began working with Rwanda, our newest partner site, via a series of telehealth conferences, which focused on general and pediatric urological procedures and case presentations. Through use of distance learning, collaboration with local physicians can continue throughout the year, reinforcing the lessons learned during formal on-the-ground workshops.

“You want to volunteer and make an impact. You need an infrastructure – partners who get where you are most needed, keep you safe and make sure the work you do is lasting. That’s what IVUmed does.”
