Nurses: the heart of essential surgery
Often, the discussion around global surgery focuses on the surgeons and the important work they do.

Challenges, Changes, and Confirmations in Uganda
There have been many changes in the hospital since I was here three years ago. There are new buildings, new staff, new ways of handling the patient population (which is growing!).

CURE Zambia Welcomes Back Its Nurses—Precious Tembo and Divine Kanguya!
About a month ago, I brought you the story of Kellen and Caroline, two nurses from CURE Kenya who had come on a nurse exchange program to CURE Zambia in September.
