In a hospital in Nyangao in Tanzania is undergoing refurbishment - reconstruction of the operational route - but also daily care of patients.
On 1st April 2018, the Polish Medical Mission commenced implementation of the project ‘Improvement of the quality of surgical treatment and care of mother and child in the regions of Lindi and Mtwara, Tanzania’. The project is focussed on providing aid to the hospital in Nyangao, in the south-eastern part of the country.
The main problems that Tanzania is struggling with in the area of surgical treatment is the shortage of adequate medical staff, especially physicians (ca. 100 surgeons per 50 million of population), shortage of the basic equipment, medicines and medical materials as well as the rapidly increasing number of patients with injuries, mainly victims of traffic accidents.
Like our aid so far in this region, this year’s PMM project in Tanzania will be focussed on care of mother and child – neonate and up to the age of five, as well as enhancement of the quality of surgical care.
