Tanzania mission December 2022: Sumve hospital and dispensary

Back in Mwanza, we started with a visit to Sumve hospital and one of its satellite dispensaries from where difficult delivery cases are sent to Sumve hospital or even to Bugando, an academic referral hospital in Mwanza. A visit and experience similar to that of Mugana. A well-run hospital, nursing staff and community health workers keen on trying out the app, the new medical officer in charge expressing his interest in running through our questions and answers to check their appropriateness. Universal standards, locally applied, that was what he would look for. I am grateful for that, this is how true ownership develops. The medics must wholeheartedly endorse it.
