Oscar Paulo, 2014 INMED National Healthcare Service Award Recipient
May 25th, 2014 by INMED
At the 2014 Exploring Medical Missions Conference next week we will honor Oscar Paulo, a physician in his home nation of Angola, located in southern Africa. Following a forty-year civil war, Angola has the lowest health status on the entire continent. In 1989 in cooperation with the Angola Baptist Convention, Dr. Paulo founded a humble medical clinic caring for the poor in the suburbs of Luanda, Angola’s capital city. Recognizing the shortage of trained healthcare personnel in the northeast region of Angola, Dr. Paulo also established a scholarship program to select and train Angolan medical students, personally mentoring them in professional, spiritual, and personal life skills for the unique challenges of this proud nation.
