Senegal Patient Selection

The Africa Mercy arrived in Dakar on August 14. The patient selection team has been working together with the Ministry of Health and Social Action (MSAS) since August and will go through each planned region by the end of November. After months of preparation in the country and onboard the vessel, the first life changing surgeries onboard the Africa Mercy started in September.

MSAS is communicating about patient selection via radio, television and posters in each scheduled region. Patient Selection has already taken place for people living in the following regions: Dakar, Thies, Diourbel, Fatick, Kaolack, Kaffrine, Louga and Saint Louis.
