Specialists Without Borders (SWB) is an Australia-based non-profit organisation contributing towards sustainable medical education in developing countries. Through SWB, groups of international medical specialists volunteer their time to lead training seminars for medical personnel in low-resource settings. Each seminar is undertaken in full partnership with local communities, hospitals, health departments, medical schools and universities. Projects include, where possible, the upgrading of facilities and the provision of educational materials and textbooks to enhance medical learning and practice.
