What We Sponsor

All doctors are welcome to apply for sponsorship, which is funded through SWME.  SWME will work to support as many eligible doctors and other medical professionals as possible to attend to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities.

SWME Doctor Sponsorship covers the entire cost of a doctor’s participation in CPD activities so they do not incur any collateral expenses.

Doctors are selected by SWME’s Advisory Board based on merit and local humanitarian involvement.  They come from areas that battle widespread health problems and have the greatest need for external aid.

Sponsorship includes:

  • Air travel and insurance
  • Hotel accommodation
  • Ground transportation
  • Visa processing
  • Meeting registration fees
  • Daily stipend for meals and local transportation
  • Educational materials
  • All other expenses as designated by SWME
