Developing sustainable pediatric cardiac programs
in Uganda, El Salvador, Jamaica and Romania.
In 2009, we developed a strategy to increase the number of children we are able to help every year. The creation of Core Programs maximized our capacity to treat more children. Within these Core Programs was the mandate to strategically develop sustainable pediatric cardiac programs and regional centers of excellence. A criteria for selection was established. To be considered a Core Program, all four criteria must be met.
