The US Embassy of Mexico intends to acquire human simulator equipment in order to train physicians and nurses in specialised treatment procedures.

Agency for International Development (USAID) of the US Embassy of Mexico, through its Office of American Schools’ and Hospital Abroad (ASHA) programme has collaborated with the American British Cowdray (ABC) Hospital to influence the ABC Medical Simulation Centre through the acquisition of the equipment.

The USAID/ASHA programme had granted a $400,000 to the ABC Medical Simulation Centre which was used to purchase three human simulators- Harvey, the cardiopulmonary patient simulator, Simbionix’s URO Mentor and HystSim and TURPSim.

Commenting on the acquisition of the new simulators USAID/Washington’s ASHA director Katherine Crawford said: "The work that American British Cowdray Hospital is doing is incredible and the new Simulation Center will allow them to continue to train the highest quality of physicians and nurses.

"They are raising the standard of care to unrivaled levels in Mexico. "

ABC Hospital has cooperated with Texas Children’s Hospital on a series of patient and referral and capacity building initiatives.
