18 September 2018

On Monday, September 17th, 2018, representatives of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) attended the Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine’s (FOCOS) annual gala, celebrating the organization’s 20th anniversary. Friends and supporters of FOCOS were in attendance, including the SNF.

The SNF has supported FOCOS through general operating grants, in addition to support for equipment and Greek clinicians to participate in FOCOS trips to Ghana.

Established in 1998, FOCOS provides comprehensive, affordable orthopedic and spine care to underserved communities in Ghana and throughout West Africa. FOCOS has built an international network of world-class volunteer surgeons and other medical providers who travel to provide surgeries to patients in need. In 2012, the FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital opened in Ghana, and provides orthopedic services, including diagnostics, imaging and laboratory, outpatient consultation and surgical care, to adult and pediatric populations.
