Alongside direct medical assistance for patients and measures towards improving medical infrastructures, EKFS places an emphasis on supporting programmes for the training and professional advancement of skilled personnel in the healthcare sector.

The EKFS would like to achieve three things via its active commitment: to directly help as many patients as possible on a local scale, to train as many qualified professionals as possible, and to create an environment that motivates and encourages them to stay in their country.
