Urolink represents BAUS in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs)

** IMPORTANT NOTICE **

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 related travel restrictions,
all Urolink visits to centres abroad are currently suspended

However, Urolink continues to support its project sites remotely and
aims to continue providing, where possible, any other assistance required.

Listen to Neville Harrison, the first chair of Urolink, talking to Steve Payne in March 2021. This podcast tells us about how Neville first came under Africa's spell, his role in the setting up of Urolink in the 1980's, and who helped him achieve the first sustainable link to KCMC in Tanzania. A fascinating retrospective, as Urolink celebrates it's thirtieth birthday!
Listen to the Podcast , from August 2020, when Tim O'Brien (President of BAUS) talked to Suzie Venn, Nick Campain and Charles Mabedi about Urolink's activities in sub-Saharan Africa.

September 2021 - View the new programme for the 2021/22 trainee Webinar series that is taking place between various centres in the UK and others across East and Central  Africa. The sessions last an hour on a Thursday afternoon. If you want to participate live in a tutorial-style session, or watch archived regordings of this very successful event, then go to the Learning Resources page and follow the links.
September 2021 - OhanaOne Annual reportHave a look at the annual report of OhanaOne, the body behind the Vuzix/Help Lightning collaboration to facilitate virtual mentoring in LMICs. This something that Graham Watson is using with Groote Schurr in South Africa, Idrissa Pouye in Senegal and Kigali in Rwanda and Suzie Venn with Charles Mabedi in our partner centre in Lilongwe, Malawi. The report gives a detailed overview of what OhanaOne has achieved and may well provide inspiration to get involved as it seems unlikely that live mentoring is going to be possible in the very near future.
August 2021 - THET and HEE arrange a webinar series "Going global'. Taking place every Wednesday between 8th September - 27th October, the series offers an unparalleled opportunity to learn from and engage with experienced colleagues in the field through a mixture of workshops, presentations and interactive sessions. The series is designed for NHS staff and final year medical and pharmacy students. From exploring the different opportunities available, to understanding how you can capture the learning you gain whilst volunteering overseas or virtually, the series is a fantastic place to find out more about getting involved in global health. Register here. You can also catch up with the series so far by following the links to the recorded sessions here.
July 2021 – The final webinar in this season's trainee education series until October. The webinar on Prostate cancer was presented by Dr Hosea Siame, from UTH Lusaka, and Mike Ng from Exeter. Hosea told us about the advanced way in which prostate cancer regularly presents in Zambia and how hormone manipulation is effected there, customarily by bilateral sub-capsular orchidectomy. Mike Ng tells us about the evidence-based management of staged prostate cancer in the UK. If you weren't able to access the live session, then you can review the recorded webinar here.
