Afya shipped a container to Ghana to support the work of Dr. Merkatz, who has been professor and university chair of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women’s Health at Einstein and University Hospital Montefiore Medical Center for 33 years. Afya’s supplies will be used in two hospitals.

Dr. Merkatz’ goal is to train 1,000 sub-Saharan African physicians in-country, which will help stem the “brain-drain” that occurs when doctors leave their homeland for training and end up remaining abroad. By training and retaining physicians in the region, Dr. Merkatz hopes to reduce maternal and infant mortality and improve women’s and children’s health.
