news | Feb 10, 2015

A year after its inauguration, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital's surgical numbers are on the rise.

Himalayan Cataract Project International Fellow Dr. Anya Gushchin went to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi, Ghana, to work with HCP partners and provide lectures on oculoplastics to ophthalmology residents.

In the year since KATH was formally inaugurated, significant progress has been made in the number of patients treated.

In its first year of operation in the newly constructed facility, outpatient numbers rose by 38% and surgical numbers rose by 26.5%, making 2014 KATH’s strongest year of surgical volume.
