To our Association, it has been asked to lay the basis for the health activity of the Dispensary, taking on the responsibilities to identify the needed health equipment and the choice of the suppliers, with particular reference to which of them to buy in Italy and which ones in Tanzania, as well as the training of the medical staff. Based to his tested experience at the Mbweni Hospital, Doctor Giuseppe Travaglini will involve Italian doctors and paramedic staff, taking care of the necessary know-how transfer, and of the supervision of the health activity in its complex.
