Women for Women Reconstructive Surgery

When Women for Women Reconstructive Surgery came to East Africa, it selected the Aga Khan Hospitals as partners for its reconstructive surgery.  In Tanzania, for example, the all-female team of surgeons from the United States and Canada worked with the non-profit Aga Khan Hospital and a government hospital, Muhimbili National Hospital, to offer reconstructive surgery to the neediest of patients.  The work also included teaching and training local surgeons. 

For more on the project, please see the film made by Women for Women Reconstructive Surgery:
