Lab Technician at Sibanor Clinic

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Join our medical team as a lab technician, to provide specific training and upgrade the skills of local Gambian staff. Sibanor Health Centre, established by WEC and now under national church’s management, provides primary health care services including antenatal, maternity, paediatric and adult medical care. There is a small ward and a specialist HIV clinic. The lab provides a basic service including measuring Hb, malaria smears, sputum smears for TB, rapid diagnostic tests for HIV and RPR, urine albumin, and dipstick, and gram and India Ink stains of CSF. We also take blood for CD4 count, which is analysed elsewhere. Teach our lab staff how to make up stains, do malaria smears and hone their other skills. Share the gospel with patients as appropriate. Ideal for those wanting a taste of mission for three months or longer. Do you enjoy training others? Then we need you!
