Hematology in Tanzania
Hematology surgeries are much-needed in Tanzania to provide curative therapy for hematological malignancies, sickle cell disease (SCD), and aplastic anemia. Establishing such a service within comparable economic and healthcare environments is feasible based on the experience of other countries with scarce resources. So with the help of collaborations and investments, Tanzanian Hospitals now provide hematology surgeries. The hematology cost in Tanzania is also low. The Tanzanian government has also made many efforts to guarantee the excellence of hematology healthcare in the nation.
SCD is one of the medical diseases that can be addressed through hematology surgery in Tanzania. SCD is a global health problem, but the impact is most significant in Africa, where more than 80% of the 305 000 afflicted newborns worldwide each year take place. With access to practically all medical procedures and treatments, Tanzania offers some of the best medical facilities in Africa. Most of Tanzania’s specialists are homegrown, and several foreign facilities support them. The government of Tanzania encourages and supports hematology. In collaboration with Indian Hospital, Tanzanian Hospital, Muhimbili National Hospital performed the first successful bone marrow transplant in Tanzania.
