Today, AKDN’s health care activities in Tanzania includes employment of 1000 staff, over 430,000 outpatient visits annually, including nearly 1.2 million lab tests, 65,000 radiology investigations, and 7,000 surgeries annually across its facilities.  Its nursing and midwifery programmes support strengthened health systems throughout Tanzania by upgrading nursing skills, improving the quality of health care and developing new and more professional nursing courses. Its community health programmes reach poor people, focusing on maternal and child health.  In collaboration with the Government of Tanzania, it is currently expanding its integrated health network to double the number of beneficiaries of its programmes.
