  In June 2013, a patient with a breast tumor was transferred from a local hospital to the Juba Hospital.

Huang Fan sorted out a complete set of surgical instruments that suited his usual practice, drafted in English operation consent forms for different categories of surgical operations, and figured out a way to communicate with local patients. He also got local doctors involved in the work and made sure that every operation would have the participation of at least one young backbone local doctor.
