Happy New Year Our Esteemed Stakeholders and Partners
Indeed we are grateful to see the New Year. Last year was by no means an easy one as we struggled with effects of the COVID -19 pandemic and the continuing daunting challenges posed by it.
The challenge however has made us stronger and more resilient, and we remain optimistic about our important work to uplift our country’s health sector and in ensuring that we continue to create stakeholder value. Nevertheless, our optimism and determination to modify our business model as a step towards mitigating the impact created by the pandemic was proved very useful.
A Year of Resilience and Trust
Looking at the path we have walked in 2021 I am energised by the milestones we have achieved as we seek to serve the underserved.
We rose to the COVID-19 challenge by expanding our service offerings, such as deployment of more than 585 skilled health care workers of different cadres to 26 Tanzania Port of Entries creating regionally acclaimed COVID -19 response efficiency.
Furthermore looking back, in the course of carrying out our program activities we expanded our evidence base by creating innovative solutions that enhanced service delivery. We developed ICT systems and upgrades and Data Collection tools installed in gadgets that have enabled the smooth extraction of data from the community enabling prompt analysis, response and reporting. Efficiency is our infusion!
The foundation continued to consolidate government efforts working with the MOHCDGEC and PORALG, determinedly investing in human resource for Health by deploying more than 9000 skilled and unskilled health workers nationally. Another notable achievement is our active involvement in producing the National Health Workforce Volunteering Guideline, a guideline intended to address shortage of health workers by enabling volunteerism. In this way, we are confident that we have added value by bringing hope to the underserved population, enabling them to enjoy faster, better, easier, and more accessible health care services.
