The Swedish Medical Program is a co-operation between Linköping University Hospital and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) for medical support to Bosnia and Hercegovina and to Kosovo. Within this program 41 infants and children from Bosnia-Hercegovina and Kosovo with severe heart disease were transferred to Sweden during the period 1995 - 2003 for treatment, with good results. The program enabled pediatric cardiologists and surgeons from these countries to visit Sweden for shorter training periods and Swedish doctors to supervise local clinicians in these countries. With support from an Austrian team a limited number of children with heart malformations have been treated locally since 2002. It is the intention of the Swedish program to further support the establishment of pediatric heart surgery in Sarajevo.
