Dr A. Denecke from Women’s Hospital, Wolfsburg, spent one week in Gondar to provide hands-on training for the gynecologists in sub-specialty oncology training. Besides sharing of experiences and honing screening skills the visit also served to maintain and upgrade colposcopic equipment. So, the light system of the existing colposcope was replaced, a camera system allowing linkage to an external monitor was installed, and mobileODT’s EVA system was introduced as a potential tool for use in VIA clinics. The colpocopy unit also received a new gynecological chair with adaptable back and leg rests which will provide basic comfort in examination both for patients and gynecologist. The chair was donated by the ZONTA Club Heidelberg.
