On the 15th March, 2021 MUHAS through Sickle Cell Programme received a donation of six oximeters from Dr. Lilian Msambichaka who is a physician in the USA working to support health care in Tanzania.
“The idea to donate pulse oximeters was spur of the moment. We are all physicians in different specialties ranging from transplant surgery, urology, pediatric gastroenterology, pediatrics and internal medicine, we came together because we have a common bond and we are all Tanzanians and we all love medicine and healthcare” Dr. Msambichaka said.
“We are humbled that we can be a part of this partnership from a far and hope for more opportunities to advance healthcare together “She added.
The Six pulse oximeters will be used within the health facilities where there are dedicated Sickle Cell Clinics.
