OUR VISION

To help provide sustainable community healthcare in underserved areas. 

ABOUT THE PHIL SIMON CLINIC TANZANIA PROJECT

In 2002, The Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project (PSCTP) took its first team of volunteer healthcare workers to Northern Tanzania. It was designed to be a fact-finding mission about the AIDS epidemic ravaging Tanzania and what we could do to help with some of the suffering of its people. That trip changed many lives, including our own. Over 200 American and European healthcare volunteers have traveled as part of the PSCTP to Northern Tanzania and shared their expertise with our Tanzanian colleagues. Now, the PSCTP has blossomed into an effective and innovative 501(C)(3) organization providing medical, surgical, social work, veterinary and specialty care in East Africa. A successful healthcare scholarship program has helped ease the tremendous shortage of physicians and nurses in Tanzania. HIV and other infectious diseases remain challenging in Africa. Effective antiretroviral therapy, education and research from many projects such as ours have helped lift some of that burden. Climate change, socioeconomic struggles, population movements, environmental destruction and political factors continue to challenge those of us working in global health. Nevertheless, we remain committed to the promotion of global goodwill and health through collaboration and compassion.

In addition to holding our first PSCTP scholarship conference, Team Tanzania 2024 will be working on establishing a One Health global outreach project involving several venues and services. One Health is fast becoming a critical strategy in assessing global health by evaluating human, animal, and environmental interfaces. PSCTP has long recognized the importance of human-animal interactions and the link between animal and human health, as demonstrated by the inclusion of veterinarians on many recent trips. This will be a comprehensive and collaborative research project assessing the relationship between domestic animals, livestock, wildlife, and human health in Northern Tanzania. Multi-institutional and multidisciplinary projects will be proposed, emphasizing microbiologic health indicators in humans and animals. We believe this will help create a robust database and research opportunities for many local and international agencies and individuals in Northern Tanzania.
