Since 2012 Tanzania has been one of the countries benefiting from Project HOPE’s multi-country Strategic Medical Re-Supply Program. Through this innovative humanitarian assistance program Project HOPE ships donated medicines, medical equipment and supplies to hospitals and health clinics in Tanzania so that the limited resources of these health care facilities can be applied to improving the quality of patient care.
In 2014, Project HOPE began contributing surgical expertise to the Strategic Medical Re-Supply Program in Tanzania. Through the program, Project HOPE's volunteer expert surgeons provide training to Tanzanian surgeons at Muhimbili National Hospital and Muhimbili Orthopedic Institute, both located in the capital Dar es Salaam, to improve surgical capacity and skills available to Tanzanians.
Project HOPE's first rotation of volunteer surgeons is at work in Tanzania.
Dr Venko Filipce, one of the head neurosurgeons at the University Clinic for Neurosurgery in Skopje, Macedonia, recently helped Project HOPE assess the need for surgical services in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
