We are health care providers and partners from Ethiopia, Minnesota (U.S.) and India who seek to prevent and treat heart disease among Ethiopian children.
We sent Ethiopia’s first pediatric cardiac surgery team to India for training, to gain experience and specialized skills with conditions found among children living in poverty.
We sent expert heart surgery teams from the Minneapolis Heart Institute (U.S.) and from India to treat children in Ethiopia and to work side by side with Ethiopia’s first pediatric cardiac surgery team as part of their training.
We partner with physicians and universities in Ethiopia, who work with the Federal Ministry of Health to prevent rheumatic heart disease in children.
We are an initiative of the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation, a nonprofit organization in the U.S.
