Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons

Great news! In 2020, Kibuye Hope Hospital will become affiliated with the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons' surgical residency program. This is a major step forward for KHH. Becoming a PAACS hospital recognizes the quality of Kibuye's surgical program, the capability of the staff and the hospital's commitment to service in the name of Christ.

There are 9 hospitals in 8 different countries: Tanzania, Gabon, Niger, Egypt, Kenya, Malawi, Cameroon, Ethiopia. Kibuye will be hospital number 10 in the 9th country, Burundi. 

Here is what PAACS says about its ministry: "The Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS) is a strategic response to the need for surgeons in Africa. We are a non-denominational, multinational service organization training African physicians to become surgeons who are willing to remain in Africa to meet this need. PAACS also disciples these residents to share the love and gospel of Jesus Christ with their patients. The surgical and spiritual training of these residents is offered at several well-established evangelical mission hospitals in Africa, under the direction of experienced, board certified missionary surgeons." 

Attached is a copy of the pages about Kibuye Hope Hospital and a map showing the location of all 10 hospitals in the PAACS 2019-2020 prayer guide. 

We can be thankful and celebrate this mark of advancement for Hope Africa University and its medical education program!
