The participants will receive training in reconstructive procedures for orthopaedic, obstetric and gynaecological surgery and learn techniques for managing the wounded and sick in conflict situations. The ICRC surgeon in charge of the course will also give some lectures to students and lecturers from Gulu University's medical faculty.

Access to adequate health care is still a major problem in northern Uganda. To improve the situation, the ICRC is supplying the government with drugs and medical equipment, training personnel and rehabilitating medical facilities in 19 camps for internally displaced persons and eight major civilian and military hospitals in Gulu, Pader and Kitgum districts.
