EMAT is now actively pursuing one of its long-term vision of having high quality Emergency Medicine (EM) practice across the whole of Tanzania. In this vision, EMAT hope to deliver EM services close to all Tanzanians, and ensure the impact of Emergency Medicine that has been demonstrated at Muhimbili, Dar es salaam City, is replicated in all Regions and Districts of Tanzania. In this Mission, EMAT will use team of experts to deliver high quality training, EM systems capacity building, and technical support in infrastructural design, equipment and administrative mentorship. In 2017, EMAT started to realize this vision when we proudly collaborated with the Ministry of Health Community Development Gender Elderly and Children, and Abbott Fund Tanzania in supporting the training, capacity building and technical expertise in supporting the renovation and equipment procurement, that was necessary for successful launching of Full capacity Emergency Department at Mbeya Zonal Referral Hospital.
The next in EMAT vision is Mt. Meru Regional Hospital in Arusha Region. We invite all stakeholders who have similar interest to join hands in supporting these initiatives so as to complement the great work of our Government in improving EM services across Tanzania
