The Gambia Collaborative

Begun in 2022 with an exploratory/feasibility trip to the Edward Francis Smalls Teaching Hospital, The Gambia Collaborative Medical Mission is a bi-directional project to explore working with global partners to understand and achieve health equity on both sides of the Atlantic.

Our team of physicians recently traveled from the US to The Gambia January 25-February 10 and were engaged in clinical activities, including morning rounds and educational lectures in various departments.

They also introduced chiropractic care and osteopathic medicine for the first time in The Gambia. Meetings were held with officials from the Ministry of Health, and a community partnership was formed with the Mbolo Association/Fandema School.

The physicians who traveled to The Gambia represented the states of New Jersey, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Montana, New York, Maryland, and Texas.

The global partners are The University of the Gambia, Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital of The Gambia and the Institute for Community Evolution, Sunu Reew Medical Mission, Shaklee Cares Foundation and Penn Global Visions.
