In August, our South African distributor Manta Medical, exhibited at the SASA Congress in Cape Town – a joint conference with healthcare professionals in stoma therapy, Colorectal and Gastro.
At the Congress we launched eakin Perform™ and eakin Cohesive® Paste and were also joint sponsors of the SASA dinner on the opening evening, held at Ratanga Junction Theme Park.
Jeremy Eakin, who attended the Congress, said, “This was an excellent conference to attend and we were extremely pleased to be able to sponsor the opening dinner for SASA (The South African Stomal Therapy Association). The South African Stomal Therapy nurses do a wonderful job dealing with such a diverse range of patients. They face additional challenges not experienced in other countries such as the extreme number of trauma wounds and the high incidence of AIDS and HIV Positive patients. In South Africa there is a lower rate of stoma patients compared to other European and North American countries, however they have more than their share of high output fistulas and wounds. SASA should be very proud of their patient care, dedication and achievements”.
