Dr. Lisa Masterson Visits Eritrea



Dr. Lisa Masterson from the TV series "The Doctors" visits Eritrea 

Feb. 24, 2012 (ASMARA) — Dr. Lisa Masterson, a co-host of the Emmy Award-winning TV series “The Doctors,” visited Eritrea this week to work with local physicians and clinics.

In an interview held with Erina, Dr. Masterson expressed appreciation for the leading roles health professionals have been playing in significantly reducing maternal and child mortality rates in Eritrea.

Emphasizing the importance of education towards developing adequate health services, Dr. Masterson congratulated the recent Orotta School of General Medicine and Dentistry graduates and encouraged further investments and support for Eritrean medical students.

In striving to assist developing nations with proper maternal health facilities, Dr. Masterson has established a charity, Maternal Fetal Care International, and funded the first sub-Saharan Africa obstetrics and gynecology residency program in Eritrea.

Since winning independence in 1991, Eritrea has been one of the top health performing nations in sub-Sahara Africa. According to the United Nations Development Progamme (UNDP) Eritrea is one of four African countries on track to meet it's Millennium Development Goal 5 for Maternal Health.
