Medical tourism to Deutschland

Postby Lamagoodle » Mon Mar 14, 2016 10:41 pm

Nin buka boqol u talisey laakin…

I do understand if Somalis from East Africa seek medical help. Health facilities are primitive and doctors are a bunch of profit maximizers (many of them do not qualify as doctors in the west). So, an MP seeking medical help due to liver diseases/ cancers /kidney failures is rational. BTW, for many it is too late.

I also understand if the patient is from the UK. It seems that there is a long waiting list at the best hospitals and cancer drugs (latest and experimental) are out of the reach of the poor.

But Somalis from Holland? The Nordic countries? Canada? USA?

I had a chat with a friend of mine who runs a clinic in Darmstadt, Hessen. He was trained in Sweden (specialist). He runs a clinic in the Frankfurt area and told me that he meets many somali patients from the Nordic countries. One time, he met a patient who was under the care of his former supervisor at one of Sweden's most reputable university hospital.

He told me that one main reason why Somalis flock to Germany is because German doctors prescribe painkillers to patients who state that they are experiencing pains; so if a patient diagnosed with a cancer visits them, after various tests (and the knowledge that the cancer is terminal) they prescribe a painkiller. The short term impact is that the patient feels that he/she is treated.

And the narrative that Germany is the place to be if you are sick gains momentum.

Walaahay Somalis don't think and are often fooled by propaganda and hearsay. I have seen people from the States who travel to Germany for treatments. USA has the best doctors and medical technology int the world. It may not be available for all, but this is the place the world's best doctors come for their training.

Guhaad waa runtaa. Even Australian Somalis flock to Germany. I met this middle aged Somali woman who had a deadly leukemia. She underwent chemo-treatment in Australia. Her cancer spread to other organs and there was no hope. She came to Germany; showed her papers to the doctors. She was prescribed painkillers and was telling everyone that she was cured. A few months later, she died.

Our people and knowledge (science) maxaa kala haaysta?

We are easily influenced by hearsay and buufis.

Nobody prescribes narcotics easier and faster than North America. I am not sure if painkillers is what is flocking the people there.

We have major trust issue and definitely have literacy problem too.

We rather ignore a trusted doctor to trek to different places before even giving the local one a chance.

It breaks my heart when i see them waste the limited qaraan funds on useless trips and more procedures when the person has already either lost function of their kidneys or at stage 3/4 cancer.

Most countries/doctors will easily help them manage the pain while they lived with dignity in those last days without drastically killing that little bit of health left in them.

More education is what we need. The ability to trust our people a little more. Even a fraction of how we are willing to trust another.

Why have we become a nation driven by buufis? Why is that we are against science? What is this darkness that has befallen our people.

I understand cancer patients but I meet many women with maseeyr syndrome, walac (or heestimo as we say in the NFD) and men who have muscle pains, middle aged crises etc. All roads lead to Germany.

You tell a somali that tests conducted did not show any science of infection/virus and the answer you get is dhaqtar fiican ma tihid.

I met a woman recently who claimed to be suffering from isfiilito (syphilis) and when she was told that tests showed that she is negative, she got so angry and claimed that Dr. XX was not a good doctor. Other societies (probably) will be happy to hear about this kind of news but not a somali.

Education could be an answer but how do you educate the waan-daadshe nation? When everybody thinks and claim to be educated?

When we lived in holland my mum went to germany for treatment eventhough my dad adviced against it, people from baadiye are more prone to hearsay than reer magaal.

That reminded me, I remember when I was a little kid in holland and gotten sick the doctor gave me this thing I had to shoot up my bum. My dad did it for me but I feel like the doctor tried to violate me.

:lol: I know it is unethical but that is when i would line them for placebo injections/iv.
We are driven by buufis.We have a disease called anigana.Like we all need uniform treatments for all our ailments.Hassan wants the blue pill hussein got from Dr.X.

The only way to beat this is through education.

IQ? I am not sure about that saaxib. I think it has to do with the institutionalised culture of " follow the flock" mentality. I have been talking to older to people and this waan daadshe mentality is not older than 30 years.

We are heading -or maybe already in- to Dante's inferno. The resistance against science/knowledge has resulted in a new wisdom with charlatans at the helm. :(

THO, adeer; it is no longer a reer baadiyo/reer magaal thing. Everyone is on this boat. I would argue that the reer baadiyas are actually better. The reer baadiye in a bid to look smart lives in a waan daadshe bubble.

Tuushi, how do you educate the uneducated or rather people who think that they are educated while they are not.?

This issue is one of many other issues; languages is another waan-daadshe issue. A somali would tell you that he/she is fluent in Arabic, Italian, English, Swedish and when you hear them speak, they have a toddler's command.

Where is the sariig? the xishood? the I don't know?

P.s. I gather that some doctors(somali) have opened clinics in London using the German card. From what I know, many of them are not qualified as doctors but they employ German doctors.

On another issue; did you read this?

This is a testimony of our love to be seen. We are the laughing stock of the world. We have become actors in an indian movie; superficial. We love to be photographed, called smart/rich/famous.

True, the problem is that even those who do think they do not have mental illnesses / buufis and a retarded brain are clinically retarded.

In Africa, even Faqi Buraale, mingisloow, pseudo medical doctors, and wadaads who claim to cure Jini are making money.

In Nairobi, there are clinics (calling themselves islamic clinics) which rip off women who are walac, jealous or going through divorces.
