Collaboration with UROCARE LTD
AMBSO holds a working collaboration with URO CARE Ltd which creates a good blend of specialized clinical care, community services and research. URO CARE has provided a key role of organizational establishment, capacity building for the community service and research team, and has provided numerous collaborative opportunities for clinical research. The collaboration enhances skills development within the two entities through joint continuous medical Education (CME) sessions and the sharing of information from various clinical and research findings.
The surgical expertise established under URO CARE Ltd complements the AMBSO community services such as voluntary Medical Male Circumcision. This has led to consistent quality outcomes, and the ability to train other institutions in skills such as device-based circumcisions (Shang Ring and Mogen clamp), and emergency resuscitation.
AMBSO and URO CARE Ltd have supported national level VMMC and early infant Male circumcision programs through consultancies to develop curriculums and guidelines. This has been done in collaboration with URO CARE, where the urological expertise has been of high value.
