Novemba is a 90 minute documentary, produced by Teesside University (UK) that was premiered at the Global Health Film festival in 2016.

It provides a behind the scenes insight into Northumbria Healthcare’s award winning international work which has achieved sustainable change through the development of new health services. This work was recognised with an African Healthcare Award 2018 for innovation in global health.

Watch consultant surgeons Mr Liam Horgan and Dr Kondo Chilonga (KCMC’s head of surgery) perform Tanzania’s first laparoscopic day case procedure, and experience the harsh reality and often heartbreak that the teams face on a day to day basis. It shows the gritty reality of healthcare provision in an environment where there are few resources but a great will to provide the best healthcare possible, often against extreme odds.
