Barco is committed to helping improve healthcare in underserved areas of our world, recently donating more than 50 diagnostic medical displays to two hospitals in support of providing quality medical imaging to partner institutions.
The Global Healthcare & Education Initiative is a New York-based NGO that supports several educational and healthcare projects in the East Africa region and beyond. Barco has partnered with the organization to supply much-needed healthcare imaging systems to help improve accurate and timely clinical care to the medical centers in the field. The health and well-being of people living in poverty-stricken areas can only be improved with better medical services, and this effort is one that both organizations are proud to support.
“Barco is happy to partner with the Global Healthcare and Education Initiative to bring better clinical solutions and thus better care to people in these remote regions of the world,” commented Lynda Domogalla, VP Product Marketing for Barco Healthcare.
