Muhimbili to offer best service in 2027 AFCON

DAR ES SALAAM : AS Tanzania prepares to host the 2027 African Cup of Nations (AFCON), Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) has declared to be fully prepared to provide diagnostic and treatment services to players who will participate in the eagerly awaited finals.

The MNH (Upanga & Mloganzila) Executive Director, Professor Mohamed Janabi disclosed yesterday in Dar es Salaam how they continue to improve specialzed services at the hospital, which has become a refuge for many Tanzanians and foreigners.

As part of utilising the privileges that will be avail- able by hosting the forth- coming 2027 AFCON finals which will be co-hosted by Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda, MNH is ready to serve the teams’ members “Muhimbili National Hospital is the largest hospital in East Africa.

We have a total of 2,300 beds for both campuses (Upanga and Mloganzila).

We have many specialists compared to other hospitals, and we also have excellent specialist services, some of which are not available in this region of East Africa, so there is no reason for the players not being brought to us for treatment,” disclosed Prof Janabi.

He added that provision of quality services is based on the big investment made by the Sixth P h a s e Government u n d e r President Samia Suluhu Hassan in training experts, and purchasing medical equipment’s, drugs, and reagents to improve health services in the country.

Apart from being ready to provide better services during the AFCON finals, Prof Janabi urged local clubs, especially those engaged in the top flight league to utilize MNH services for health checkup before signing players in the ongoing transfer window.

The checkups will keep the clubs from signing players who may have health challenges that may cause them not to serve the clubs effectively.

Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda were selected by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to co-host the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations finals whereby in Tanzania the games are expected to be hosted in Dar es Salaam at the Benjamini Mkapa Stadium, New Amaan Complex in Zanzibar and the newly Samia Suluhu Hassan Stadium which is under construc- tion in Arusha region.
