The unit is now operating independently and covering its costs. The Amana Hospital is thus the only hospital in Dar-Es-Salaam, apart from the University Hospital, to offer this diagnostic and therapeutic method.
However, collaboration also extends to physical therapy, internal medicine, anesthesia and other areas.
Since 2018, this exchange has been intensified as part of the “Clinic Partnerships” program of the German Federal Ministry for Development Cooperation. One focus is on reducing perinatal maternal and infant mortality.
Within the framework of the projects, VIMZ e.V. supports the AMANA Hospital with technical equipment. Among other things, a sonography unit and an anesthesia unit were handed over to the AMANA Hospital from donations. Amana Hospital’s medical records are maintained entirely electronically. The necessary computers were donated by VIMZ.
