Ethiopian nursing programme

Published on: 29 June 2013


Tullow held its third successful industry partner forum, which aims to raise awareness of anti-bribery and corruption, the requirements of the UK Bribery Act, as well as Tullow's own Code of Business Conduct.

In Ethiopia there is a higher than average number of road traffic accidents compared to the rest of the continent. We are helping to build specialist emergency care capability by investing $93,500 per year to support 15 students to attend the trauma nurse training. As well as broader social benefits of improved access to healthcare, the programme addresses Tullow’s risk of not being able to treat people after a road accident, given our increased operations and presence in the country. Dr. Einar Eriksen, the surgeon responsible for the training programme said: “Due to generous financial support from Tullow Oil Company, one very important training program has been introduced to the country. Well educated theatre nurses are of greatest importance and a huge resource to further development within any surgical discipline.”
