Transport of medicines © PSF Switzerland
PSF Switzerland has been working in Tanzania since 2013, in the region of Morogoro, within the Lutheran Hospital of Lugala and its dispensaries of Masagati and Ngalimila. This is a poor and remote area with poor health infrastructure. Access to the area is even more difficult during the rainy season – the roads are almost impassable – which makes the delivery of medicines problematic. Yet the hospital is one of the only health facilities in the region, serving a population of over 150,000. Since 2022, PSF Switzerland has also been active in the Ulanga district, at Mahenge hospital and Mwaya health centre, bringing the population supported to over 250,000.
