Sunny greetings from The Gambia, the smiling coast of Africa. Do not miss the experience of visiting Africa's jewel with beautiful beaches and friendly people.
The University of The Gambia Medical Students' Association(UniGaMSA) was founded in the year 2004 by the second cohort of medical students of the University of The Gambia School of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences. From that time to date, UniGaMSA has grown both locally and internationally in terms of academics, research, community outreach and extra curricular activities. We welcome each and every medical student interested in professional and research exchange to our beautiful and peace loving country.
The Gambian Health Care System is arranged in such a way that there are primary, secondary and tertiary health care facilities. Much attention is given to primary health care because it is the patient's first contact with the health system and it mainly focuses on prevention methods and health education. These facilities are usually manned by health personnel from the individual towns and villages, in the spirit of community involvement.
Secondary health care is a step above primary health care as it focuses on those diseases that cannot be managed at the primary health facilities.
Tertiary health care is the final level of the health care system and these facilities manage all the referrals from the primary and secondary health facilities.
Not withstanding, there are privately owned health care facilities and there are also non-profit health facilities that help in rendering health care servives to the public.

There are two main religions practiced in The Gambia, Islam (≥ 95%) and Christianity (≥4%). It is therefore not surprising that the religious traditions in The Gambia are mostly attributed to Islam. However, The Gambia is a country that every nation could emulate as far as religious tolerance is concerned.
