Mawenzi Regional Hospital is located in the very centre of Moshi town in the north eastern part of Tanzania, close to the Kenyan border. The hospital has a connection with Norway, which sends some of its physiotherapy students for short rotations at the hospital. Mawenzi has quite a long history, starting as a medical dispensary in the 1920s before being upgraded to a hospital in 1956, but after the opening of the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre in Moshi, the hospital became underfunded, though it is still quite big and busy. Nevertheless, it is still the second largest hospital of the Kilimanjaro area.
It provides a range of services across several departments. These departments are made up of medical wards, surgical wards, a pediatric ward, a physiotherapy unit, which has two inhouse physiotherapists, a gynaecological and prenatal ward, which includes a labour ward, a HIV-unit, tuberculosis clinic, X-ray, a laboratory, and is offering tropical medicine. The hospital also caters for about 300 outpatients each day. Overall, it receives about 250-350 inpatients and 800 outpatients each day.
