Hope for Tanzania

Arusha Clinic

Published 08 August 2011

The clinic started carrying out minor operations in July after much planning and preparation. This marked an exciting landmark for a scheme that was proposed by Tanzanians and assisted by a supporter of Hope for Tanzania after making a trip to Arusha in 2009. The clinical staff will gradually gain experience so that they can offer a wider range of operations. At the moment, operations are carried out on two days each week by a surgeon and anaesthetist who work elsewhere in Arusha during the other days. The nursing staff work fulltime at the clinic. The clinic provides medical services to local people at affordable rates and, when its financial position becomes secure, will provide a significant subsidy for people who are too poor to afford such medical treatment.
