Tanzanian doctors to get cardio training

Our Bureau

Hyderabad , Oct. 14

A GROUP of doctors and medical personnel from Tanzania will be trained in latest practices in cardiology at a city-based hospital.

The initiative is the result of a gesture made by the President, Mr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, when he visited the African country recently.

Moved by the plight of children suffering from heart diseases and lack of medical facilities in that country, he suggested they be shifted to CARE Hospital at Hyderabad for treatment, Dr B. Somaraju, Chairman of the hospital, told a press conference here on Friday.

The President had promised to sponsor five children. On its part, the Air India agreed to allow them to travel free of cost.

Soon, the number went up to 18, with ages ranging from 10 months to 22 years, and all of them were airlifted to India. Mr Kalam, who is in the city to take part in the valedictory of World Sight Day celebrations, will see the children on Saturday.
