"Our mission is to advance medical expertise and care in Tanzania through the training and education of local medical personnel (the Train-Forward model). Through this model we will improve health care and medical autonomy by investing knowledge, skills, and time, rather than dollars, into the Tanzanian healthcare infrastructure."


Professor Peter Zwerner

From Dar to Zanzibar in an Inflatable kayak

You may already be aware that we are organising the second East African Cardiology Conference (EACC) this July. The challenge we have is to raise sufficient funds to pay for cardiologists from East Africa to be able to attend (mainly travel costs). Hence we have created a crazy idea to raise much needed money to pay for the travel costs of cardiologists and costs to continue their training; Our director will paddle in an inflatable kayak from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar on the 5th of June! If all goes well he should arrive 8-10 hours after departure. If it doesn't go according to plan, then well, we may have a new vacancy. Check out our dedicated event crowdrise website: 



Save the date!
This July we will host the 2nd East African Cardiology Conference (EACC) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
The previous conference, back in 2012, was a huge success and we are eager to continue building on the foundation build.  
Hence, the announcement of the hosting of the 2nd EACC. 


Dates: 12 and 13 July
