The Planning process was officially launched by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health Tanzania, Dr. Mpoki Ulisubisya, and Ms Asha Verghese- Director, Developing Health Globally at the General Electric Foundation (GE Foundation) and Deputy Permanent Secretary for health at the President’s Office Regional and Local Government (PORALG), Dr. Zainab Chaula the Director of Health and Nutrition services at PORALG, Dr. Ntuli Kapologwe as well as Regional and District Medical Officers.
The need for a National Surgical, Obstetric and Anaesthesia Plan has been informed by various studies highlighting the urgent need to prioritize safe surgery in Tanzania. A study carried out using the WHO Tool for Situational Analysis to Assess Emergency and Essential Surgical Care in 2012 found that the average travel distance for patients receiving surgical care is 119 km in Tanzania.1
The Lancet Commission on global surgery recommends that by the year 2030, 80% of the population should have access to emergency surgical care within 2hrs. However, the current proportion of Tanzania’s population that cannot access surgery within two hours is unknown.
