BMF Supports the Office of Regional Medical Officer (RMO) with Medical Supplies.
During the occasion of the International Women’s Day 2023, the Benjamin Mkapa Foundation (BMF) has taken a step towards supporting the health needs of women and others by handing over medical supplies to the Office of DSM Regional Medical Officer (RMO). The supplies, which include examination and surgical gloves, masks and sanitizers were received by the Regional Dental Officer (Dr Daisy Majamba) on behalf of the RMO at Amana Hospital, Ilala Dar Es Salaam.
The handover ceremony was attended by members of the Regional Health Management Team (RHMT), who acknowledged the importance of prioritizing women’s health in creating a healthier and more equitable world for everyone. BMF’s contribution will help address some of the key health needs of women and their close dependents in the Region and ensure that necessary medical supplies are available for the provision of quality health services.
Speaking on the occasion, a representative of BMF (Ms. Mwajabu Mbaruku, BMF Program Administrator) emphasized the organization’s commitment to promoting women’s health and well-being and called on other stakeholders to join hands in supporting this important cause. “We believe that investing in women’s health is not only the right thing to do, but also a smart and strategic choice that yields dividends for individuals, families, and communities,” the representative said.
The handover of medical supplies is just one of many initiatives undertaken by BMF to improve health outcomes in Tanzania and beyond. The organization’s programs and projects cover a wide range of health areas, including HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Maternal and Child Health, and non-communicable diseases.
BMF remains committed to working with partners and stakeholders to promote health and well-being, and to empower communities to take charge of their own health. The organization encourages everyone to join in this important effort to create a healthier, more equitable world for all.
