The Tanzania High Commission has postponed the International Joint Medical camp on cardiovascular care, which was scheduled to take place 20th to 25th March, 2023 due to cyclone Freddy effects.
According to Tanzania High Commissioner Humphrey Hesron Polepole, as a result the camp has been shifted to a week starting on 17th to 21st April, 2023.
“The medical personnel at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital are stretched with the disasters caused by Cyclone Freddy,” he said.
Polepole said they thought in a month’s time the situation will be settled a little bit hence the shift.
The Jakaya Kikwete Cardiac Institute medical team in collaboration with the Malawi medical team is expected to reach out to 448 patients with heart conditions currently on the waiting list to be assisted.
