KEY MEDICAL FIGURES
Our teams provided specialist healthcare to Burundian refugees in Nduta camp and people living in the surrounding villages. We continued to offer health services for women and children, including care and counselling for victims of sexual and gender-based violence. We also provided emergency mental health consultations and diagnosis for tuberculosis and HIV, as well as for a range of non-communicable diseases. In August, we handed over our non-communicable diseases clinic in Nduta hospital to Medical Teams International.
Our teams also responded to other emergencies, such as the cholera outbreak during April in Kigoma Uvinza, and COVID-19 in Ukerewe district, in Mwanza region, from January to April.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, we started a new project in Liwale Lindi, southern Tanzania, supporting seven government health facilities by providing access to general and specialist healthcare to pregnant women and children under five years old.
