Acupuncture Project in Uganda

February 18, 2007 - Uganda

The Director of Real Medicine Foundation (RMF) Whole Health Team, Beth Cole, traveled to Uganda with the PanAfrican Acupuncture Project (PAAP) December 8 to December 22, 2006. The group of trainers consisted of five American volunteer Acupuncture Physicians, Richard Mandell, the founder of PAAP and Allen, the Ugandan coordinator and past trainee.

For two weeks we traveled through Uganda, a country devastated by HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis, training nurses and midwives in acupuncture protocols to relieve pain and suffering.
