This was our first official mission to Mwanza, Tanzania. We collaborated with International Health Partners-Tanzania in Nyakato and were able to see approximately 135 patients in clinic and perform nine gynecologic surgeries. HIV and other STDs were diagnosed and sadly, were common.

Dr. Nu’man held a women’s health educational evening at one of the local mosques. This was very well attended and very successful. The goal of MIA is to continue to have a long term relationship with IHP-TZ and continue to provide gynecologic and other medical services to the people of Tanzania.
