Trauma Care Ethiopia

Making money on social entrepreneurship

The foundation Trauma Care Ethiopia (TCE) was established by enthusiastic staff at SUS. The vision of the foundation to teach modern trauma treatment in Ethiopia. Health care personnel from SUS offer unpaid leave of absence, travel to our established trauma centre in Addis Ababa in an attempt to reverse the brain drain to brain gain. The foundation hopes for the knowledge and expertise built up at the trauma centre to be spread to all hospitals in the country on the long term, and to ensure quality emergency treatment for the entire population.
