The ultimate goal of Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) is to create centers of competence in developing countries so that children can be treated independently in their own communities. At the Wolfson Medical Center in Israel, SACH brings medical personnel from partner sites around the globe for in-depth post-graduate training in all facets of pediatric cardiac care including cardiology, surgery, anesthesia, intensive care, perfusion and nursing.
Training programs vary from three months to five years and are all held under the auspices of the Sackler School of Medicine of the Tel Aviv University and the Center for International Cooperation of the Foreign Ministry of Israel - MASHAV.
Since its inception in 1995, SACH has trained 88 physicians and nurses at the Wolfson Medical Center from China, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kenya, Moldova, Nepal, Nigeria, the Palestinian Authority, Romania, Russia, Tanzania, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zanzibar.
