Continued Education of the Personnel in the Saba Saba Health Care Centre


The inhabitants of Morogoro (300 000) do not receive qualitative basic health care, because the regional hospital does not admit patients of this level any more. Morogoro Municipality have decided to 1. upgrade the standard of one Saba Saba health centre and to 2. change it into a municipal hospital, as soon as the state will grant it the recourses for building, equipment and personnel. At the moment the health centre cannot guarantee qualified basic health care due to lack of the personnels' know-how and the insufficient equipment and instruments. Long-term objective of the project is that Morogoro inhabitants will receive qualitative basic health care. It would also serve other health institutions.Objectives: 1) Qualified and skilled personnel in the health centre with necessary equipment and instruments (focused in the four areas prioritized by them) 2) Know-how of the personnel in other health care institutions will also improve thanks to job-circulation.It is also necessary for the poor, disabled, elderly people and HIV-patients to receive good health care at affordable price.In support of developing a new health care level in Morogoro municipality according to a decision made by the state, the region and the municipality: one health centre will be upgraded (later into a municipal hospital. The aim is to support that phase by supervising the personnel in a future project)
