Partners: ELCA and Evangelical Church In Tanzania.


Since the Tanzanian health care system was privatized, it has been very difficult for the ELCT to retain Tanzanian doctors in church hospitals. Salaries are low and doctors can earn more in government hospitals or private practice. A plan was devised whereby the ELCT can grow its own doctors in the years 2001 through 2005. Two ELCT medical students will enter Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center of Tumaini University each year for a total of 10 medical students. Each will be selected through a careful screening process, their medical education will be paid be the program and they will sign an agreement to serve in an ELCT hospital upon graduation.


" To enable the Evangelical Lutheran church in Tanzania to train their own members for service in ELCT hospitals.

" To build up a critical mass of ELCT doctors.

" To strengthen the ELCT Managed Health Care program.
