Summary

With a population of 55 million people, Tanzania has only one cardiac hospital, Jakaya Kikwete Cardiac Institute (JKCI) located in Dar es Salaam and staffed to treat only 400 children a year. The New BMH (Benjamin Mkapa Hospital) in Dodoma has been dedicated with a wing for the cardiac facility to assist. This project aims to equip 2 empty cardiac theatres at BMH to facilitate the provision of free pediatrics cardiac treatments to the Tanzanian children in need.
