As a Bridge2Aid 'Unity Partner' we were delighted when Bridge2Aid featured on BBC Radio 4.

Bridge2Aid's Dr Ian Wilson was speaking to Radio 4’s Sandi Toksvig as part of a Medics Abroad feature during her Excess Baggage programme!

Sandi also speaks to Dr Marie Charles who runs an organisation which places volunteer doctors and nurses in developing countries to impart their skills to local medical workers and Ian relates how he used his dental skills and experience to start our Dental Volunteer Programme in Tanzania.

Both speak about the importance of training local people in order to build capacity in the healthcare system.

It's a great listen - you can still hear the programme by following this link to the BBC website.
