In the hospitals in Tanzania, auxiliary nurses without training take on many responsible tasks. They place infusions, inject antibiotics and stitch wounds. Luzia Illiger, who works as a gynecologist in the hospital in Isoko on behalf of Mission 21, admires on the one hand how they simply learn a lot from their colleagues. On the other hand, it is sometimes difficult for her to see how mistakes happen because knowledge is lacking - to the detriment of the patients.
Luzia Illiger says: "With my work as a gynecologist in the hospital in Isoko, I cannot change the health and education system in Tanzania. However, I can offer to pass on my knowledge." Especially in the rural health stations, short training sessions can make a big difference.
