The Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) has formed a new partnership with RAD-AID International to offer CAMRT members the opportunity to contribute to the healthcare needs of developing countries through participation in RAD-AID missions around the world. Recipients of this award will join RAD-AID’s project teams in international initiatives designed to improve access to quality medical imaging for populations in need.
RAD-AID is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to increase and improve radiology resources in developing and impoverished countries. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 4 billion people are at risk for widespread losses and deaths that can be avoided or treated, if radiology were available. RAD-AID was established in 2008 to answer this need. It has since grown to include more than 3,500 contributors from 200 countries, and has on-site programs in more than 14 countries.
