Fund urgent COVID medical equipment for Tanzania

by Tanzania Development Trust
Fund urgent COVID medical equipment for Tanzania

Summary

Please help us provide doctors and other healthcare workers in Tanzania with protective equipment and basic tools to help them fight COVID19. Although current confirmed cases in Tanzania low, due to very low testing rates this is undoubtedly a huge underestimate and unfortunately we expect the numbers to rise substantially. Tanzania has an extremely unprepared health system, with only 0.4 doctors per 10,000 population (compared to 28 for the UK), and and only 1.3 ICU beds per million people.

Challenge

Although current confirmed COVID cases in Tanzania are low (24 at time of writing), due to very low testing rates this is undoubtedly a huge underestimate and unfortunately we expect the numbers to rise substantially. Tanzania has an extremely unprepared health system, with only 0.4 doctors per 10,000 population (compared to 28 for the UK), and only 1.3 ICU beds per million population.

Solution

This urgent emergency appeal to help doctors and other health workers protect themselves with PPE and give them some of the basic tools they need. We are working closely with TUHEDA the Tanzania UK Healthcare Diaspora Association, to ensure doctors also receive remote training to make the best use of all equipment they have.

Long-Term Impact

Protect Tanzania's vital and under resourced health care system from COVID as much as possible, and ensure people are treated without infecting health workers, therefore saving many lives.
