MNH conducts special camp to provide free health check up

MUHIMBILI National Hospital (MNH) will today start a three-day camp at Temeke Regional Referral Hospital grounds to provide free health check up to the surrounding community.

The camp aims at moving the services closer to the people, especially screening of diseases such as diabetes, kidney, ear, nose, throat (ENT), cardiacand dental.

Temeke District Commissioner, Mwanahamisi Munkunda revealed this recently during the launch of the medical camp which will have experts from MNH Upanga and Mloganzila who will collaborate with medical doctors from Temeke Regional Referral Hospital.

“I congratulate the leadership of Muhimbili National Hospital for its decision to move specialist services closer to the people of the District by bringing in expert doctors to provide services at the Temeke Regional Referral Hospital.

“We call upon residents of Temeke to turn up in large numbers to get these services because the government’s goal is to ensure that people have access to reliable and quality services,” Munkunda said.

She added “Also, I use this opportunity to congratulate Dr Mohamed Janabi for coming up with this idea to have a camp in Temeke District so that people could have access to such services.

On his part, MNH-Mloganzila Acting Head of Communications, Sophia Mtakasimba said the camp is in response to government directives which require national and referral hospitals to build capacity to other health workers to improve efficiency in serving people.

The camp will help to share experience among health workers in order to improve the provision of health services in the country.

“We are very concerned about the health of the people, that is why we have organised these camps to be done outside the national and referral hospitals,” she said.

Mtakasimba further said the camp will be conducted regularly to enable more people to have access to the specialised services.
