Global Pediatrics Program Tanzania

Tanzania is a large country with 39 million population. Several Children’s Hospital staff have longstanding relationships in Tanzania working on improving childhood nutrition. The Global Pediatrics Program is now beginning a collaboration for pediatric residents to participate in clinical care delivery.

Since 2010, the Global Pediatrics Program has established a medical education and clinical capacity building component in Tanzania. In conjunction with the Boston Combined Residency Program and Muhimbili University Pediatrics, residents work with the on-site coordinator, Dr. Kisenge, participating on ward teams, in the acute care unit, in the neonatal ward, or in an outpatient clinic. MNH is a national referral base, which means residents care for children with unusual or late presentations of less common diagnoses such as cancer or congenital heart disease.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
