Now on demand, I am talking to Maggie Ehrenfried, Managing Director, Development LifeNet International (@LNInternational). LifeNet International is an organization working hard across Sub Sharan and East Africa to change that. This non-profit which touts its incredible efficiency operates through an “amplification of local resource” model to build and strengthen in-country capacity in the healthcare delivery chain. They work in collaboration with other services to better equip nurses, and health workers with the right care skills to deliver safe high-quality care.
