AFG Renews its Commitment to Save the Lives of Children Suffering from Hydrocephalus

Bebe Sylla visits AMEHG AFG and the Association of Mothers of Children with Hydrocephalus (AMEHG) continue their effort to give the many children who suffer from the disease a chance to lead a normal life. To date, well over one hundred children and their families have registered for treatment. AFG has developed a brand new strategy to ensure the success of this joint enterprise. This innovative project, spanning five years, will not only provide the equipment and supplies necessary to perform life-saving operations, but will also focus on early diagnosis, a comprehensive treatment protocol and support for recovering patients and their families. In addition, AFG will coordinate training and exchange sessions for Guinean doctors and physical therapists, as well as working on educational activities and material that will provide information on the disease and its treatment, to be distributed to the general public. We hope to raise awareness amongst the Guinean government and population so that Hydrocephalus is recognized as the devastating disease that it is, and suitable action is taken to diagnose and treat the hundreds of children who are affected by it. AFG and AMEHG want to ensure that Hydrocephalus is no longer a death sentence for the people of Guinea.
