Meet the Consultants to Make This Project Work
International Palestinian Cardiac Relief Organization (IPCRO)
In April, 2004 the University of Ghent in Belgium hosted the first meeting for dozens of volunteer doctors and nurses from all over the world to plan for the long-term building and support for a pediatric cardiac surgery program in Palestine. Led by IPCRO’s first president – Professor Guido Van Nooten – IPCRO has since evolved into the main consulting partner of the PCRF, advising on missions, patient care, ICU protocols, infrastructural support and development. The goal of IPCRO is to build up services so that eventually these children can be treated in the PA MOH and not be transferred abroad for expensive and difficult care.
