About the project

Within the “hospital partnerships – Partners strengthen health” initiative the GTP commits itself to improving newborn care at the Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. The project startet at the end of 2018 and receives technical support from the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) and financial support from the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) as well es from the Else Kroener Fresenius Foundation (EKFS). Our Tanzanian partners have asked for implementation of ultrasound and echokardiography as well as for training for doctors and nurses in various forms of invasive and non-invasive ventilation.

The newborn unit at the MNH has got more than 100 beds and receives between 6500 to 7000 newborns per year as inpatients. The MNH is affiliated with the biggest medical faculty of Tanzania: MUHAS (Muhimbili University for Health and Allied Sciences).
