Advancing patient-centered care in rural Tanzania.
FAME is an organization entirely focused on advancing quality medical care in rural Tanzania. From the beginning, we set out to provide communities in the Northern Highlands of Tanzania with a unique healthcare experience – one marked by patient-centered care & quality service. In that spirit, FAME endeavors to meet the medical needs of ordinary Tanzanian people, including underserved populations in the most rural parts of the region.
FAME’s major accomplishments to date include the phased construction, staffing & operation of FAME Medical, the operation of a mobile medical service for 10 years running, & an ambitious, in-house continuing medical education program designed to build local capacity. We aspire to build & strengthen FAME Medical & its providers to meet the most pressing medical needs of the next generation of families in the Karatu District & beyond.
FAME’s Current Strategic Priorities:
Education & Training - Capacity Building
Continuous Quality Improvement
