Our Work Map

Tanzania

Moshi, Tanzania is home to Duke’s most established global health partnership for research, training, and education. Spanning more than 20 years, Duke has built substantial clinical research collaborations with Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC), and has placed MSc-GH and medical students as well as residents and fellows at KCMC for training and research opportunities. Duke and DGHI faculty are transforming medical education at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical College. The $10 million Medical Education Partnership Initiative brings technology, teaching innovations and new resources to expand training to the future medical providers in Tanzania. These and other initiatives are continuing the tradition of collaboration and capacity building with our partners in Tanzania. Duke’s Physician Assistant program has sent students to Machame Lutheran Hospital located in Machame, Tanzania for international clinical rotations. Duke and DGHI faculty partner with other organizations throughout Tanzania undertaking innovative research projects on a range of topics, including maternal health, malaria, emerging infectious diseases, emergency medicine, and medical education.
