Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery

The Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery

The Salam Centre is run and managed by the Italian based humanitarian organisation EMERGENCY.
Since April 2007, the Centre provides high standard, free of charge paediatric and adult cardiac surgery.


The Technical Agreement with Eritrea was signed on February 23rd, 2007.

EMERGENCY’s specialized personnel perform screening and follow-up activities in two public hospitals, the Orotta Hospital and the Mekane Hewat Paediatric Hospital, both located in the capital city, Asmara.

The Ministry of Health is actively cooperating by facilitating EMERGENCY in all administrative and bureaucratic procedures requested by the Eritrean law and by ensuring tax exemption for the project related needs.
