In June 2011, a group of Iraqi surgeons joined us for a one-month clinical and academic training programme. The partners for delivering this project were the Ministry of Higher Education in Iraq (MoHE), the Intercollegiate Iraqi Liaison Group (ICILG), and Imperial College NHS Trust. Clinical attachments were at Imperial NHS Trust three days a week and the other days focussed on academic training. Along with several lectures, this included an ATLS course at Hillingdon hospital and visits to Royal College of Surgeons, Cerner Hospital. Important contacts were made between the Iraqi Surgeons and potential collaborators in London.


Dr Nashwa Bannani from Saudi Arabia visited the WHO CC in July 2010. During her clinical attachment, focussing on Adolescent Medicine, Dr Bannani visted local clinics and related institutes specialising in adolescent mental health. As part of this clinical attachment, Dr Bannani was supported in developing an Adolescent Health Strategy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
