Mvumi Hospital

District General Hospital | Mvumi, Tanzania

Hospital description

Mvumi is a district hospital serving a poor community who pay for their own medical treatment. It is ‘low tech’, and basic compared to what you have seen in Western teaching hospitals. You need to be open minded and sensitive to local people’s feelings (including the staff’s). Patients present late so there are lots of interesting clinical signs.
