Together, Australian and ni-Vanuatu plastic and reconstructive surgeons improve lives

Radio Vanuatu reports Australian plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Ian Holten, and local surgeon, Samuel Kemuel, with support from the staff at Vila Central Hospital, performed the surgeries as part of the Australia Non-Government Organisation Cooperation Program (ANCP) which is managed by Interplast.

Funded by the Australian Government, the program utilises the skills and knowledge of visiting Australian specialists to develop the skills of local surgeons and surgical trainees in both complex and basic operations.
