Description

The Chinese Government has been dispatching medical teams to Togo every two years since 1974. Shanghai was originally responsible for sending the teams but Shanxi Province took over in 1983. In 2013, the Chinese Government dispatched the 20th Chinese medical team to Togo (第20批中国援多哥医疗队 or 中国援多第20批医疗队). The 20-member team was stationed at Lomé Regional Hospital Center (CHR-Lomé Commune or CHU-Lomé) in the capital city of Lomé and Kara Regional Hospital (also known as Centre Hospitalier Régional de Kara or Hôpital chinois de Tomdè or CHR-Kara-Tomdè or Centre hospitalier régional de Kara Tomdè) in the city of Kara. 10 members of the team were stationed at the Lomé Regional Hospital Center and 10 members of the team were stationed at the Kara Regional Hospital. The team completed its term of service between August 3, 2013 and September 9, 2015. It treated 32,775 patients treated and operated on 1,690 people. It also helped organize a public health seminar in Ebola control in Lomé in January 2015.
