"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."


Change a Child’s Life

Help us build a Pediatric Ward at the Cardiac Institute!


Earlier this month, Madaktari was part of a pediatric cardiac screening at Jakaya Kikwete Cardiac Institute. Out of the 135 children we screened, 15 needed an immediate operation and many others needed treatment and monitoring. Without intervention, most of these kids are unlikely to make it to their fifth birthday. We are working to build a new pediatric ward at Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to ensure children get the care and treatment they deserve. Please donate here this International Heart Day and support our efforts. Every little bit helps!
