7.) Secondment of German doctors to our Hospital at Punakha

Great part of the success and recognition of our hospital in Punakha we owe to the secondment of very dedicated German doctors to the hospital from  1998 to 2011.

The secondments of Dr. med. Martin Joos and Dr. med. Johannes Meixner were financed to a larger extent by CIM, the Centre for International Migration and Development, Frankfurt, the other part by “Pro Bhutan”.

Following this period, “Pro Bhutan”was able, in co-operation with the NGO “Senior Experts Service”, Bonn, Germany, to second Dr. med. Hans Winkler and Dr. med. Werner Missalek, for 9 months each, to our hospital in Punakha. Both did, with highest motivation, an excellent job greatly appreciated by the patients and the Bhutanese Government.

From March 2008 to November 2009, “Pro Bhutan” seconded, again on long term basis, Dr. med. Susanne McAllister to “our” hospital in Punakha: She did a wonderful job.


MD Susanne McAllister

Due to the increased importance of the Punakha Hospital, a sufficient number of doctors are seconded by the Ministry of Health. Therefore, in the foreseeable future, “Pro Bhutan” shall not second any more German doctors to Punakha.
