Making It Work: Managing medical equipment in low-resource settings is a documentary about the health partnership between Ndola Central Hospital in Zambia and Guy's & St. Thomas' Hospital in the UK which seeks to improve training for biomedical engineers in Zambia and improve medical equipment capacity at Ndola Hospital.
The film focusses on the lack of qualified biomedical engineers in Zambia and other African countries, the partnership's work training engineers, and the work THET is doing to improve the maintenance and management of medical equipment in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The film also takes a look at inappropriate medical equipment donations to developing country hospitals and what THET and others are doing to ensure well thought out, appropriate donations become the norm.
