Program implementation in Tanzania

17 April 2015

"In Tanzania we are preparing for the implementation of a RHD prevention and control program. Discussions are underway with local assessment and implementing partners. We have had introductory meetings with the Ministry of Health and local government authorities. Along with Medtronic's portfolio lead, we have toured potential sites in which we could concentrate early efforts and tentatively chosen Sengerema district in the Lake Zone." ~ Dr Steve Justus, Touch Foundation
