Programmes & Projects

In 2012 Tanzania's Ministry of Health and Social Welfare wrote the National eHealth Strategy to encourage the use of technology in hospitals throughout the country, but most of the advancements only came to urban centers of healthcare. Now Shirati is working with Luke Maillie, an undergraduate from the University of Notre Dame, to try and increase the use of technology at Shirati Hospital. This technology ranges from

telemedicine, allowing for specialists from all over the world to consult on specialty cases, to an intercom system, allowing hospital staff to contact each other more efficiently.
