Expanding Guyana’s National Telemedicine Project

In December 2022, Guyana’s government launched a national telemedicine program to transform health and provide equitable healthcare to all of Guyana’s citizens. New locations were added across Regions 1, 8, and 9 to expand this successfully running program.

Redwood City, CA – June 7, 2023

Adding these locations to the program required traveling via plane through some of the lushest interiors of Guyana to reach the remote locations, set up connectivity, and install the GALE telemedicine units. Watch the documentary produced by NCN, Guyana’s national TV station, on the journey and steps taken to bring these locations to the program.

Already slated for installation, this expansion plan step was expedited due to the heartbreaking tragedy of the girl's dorm fire in Mahdia. Within two days of the tragic incident, 19Labs deployed a team to Mahdia, establishing a dedicated telemedicine unit at the local hospital. After this, 19Labs extended its support to other affected communities to continue providing access to care and support for the victims, their families, and indigenous communities.
