Modern Medics Clinic

Modern Medics Clinic Tanzania, slated to open in 2017, will provide health care to the underserved area surrounding Nianjema Schools. Located close to the schools, it the realization of a long term Tanzania Education Fund goal.

The clinic will provide state-of-the-art health care and services, including educational outreach, to the immediate surrounding community of 50,000 residents in addition to the Nianjema Schools, which itself serves 500 students, more than 60 faculty and staff and their families.

When completed, in addition to basic medical services Modern Medics will provide:

  • Medical attention to all students at Nianjema schools.
  • Offices and facilities for visiting specialists to treat patients on site, near their homes and families.
  • Community outreach programs for educating the community, with an emphasis on reaching the youth in our schools, about diseases and preventative measures.
  • Distribution of medical supplies like eyeglasses.

The immediate building phase is completed, greatly facilitated by a grant from the W. O’Neil Foundation that underwrote the roof. Secure external doors were underwritten by a grant from the Carney Family Foundation.

Next Steps

Modern Medics Clinic Tanzania is committed to a partial opening in 2017. Although the full provisioning and building will not be complete, Dr. Mastidia Rutaihwa, future director and co-founder, and Charles Sloan, co-founder and founder and school manager for Nianjema Schools, feel that it is crucial to begin providing medical services as soon as possible.
