In Sub Saharan Africa, 22 million people live with HIV/AIDS, one child in five dies from malaria, one woman in sixteen dies during pregnancy or childbirth, and there are 750 thousand new cases of tuberculosis every year. Africompassion Tanzania in collaboration with other partners and the government, works hard to end preventable deaths of women and children in the regions by creating a primary healthcare system that works for those who need it most. We do this by integrating community health workers and with the local health centers.
In an effort to improve health care, we have a 2020/2025 project plan to build a Medical health center in Rorya District with a plan of 4 surgical theaters, a maternity + delivery theater, and malnutrition wards. The organization is seeking for collaboration with any willing organization, friends, families and medical institutions to partner and create a sustainable approach to improve lives of the neediest community through medical aid, education, public health while promoting friendship across cultures.
Through working together, we hope to bridge the healthcare gap by distributing medical supplies and equipment to underserved people in the region. The planned Medical Care Center will offer long-term medical support with help of a local nurse and physician and is anticipated to open early within 2020/2025 funds availability may allow. For the time being, we seek for medical mission partners who may bring health care professionals including trained physicians, physician assistants, trained nurses along-side doctors to provide surgical interventions for those in need of immediate surgery.
