What Uganda has learnt from Tanzania on tackling heart diseases

Uganda’s Social Services Parliamentary Commission, led by Ms Cecilia Barbara (MP), visited the Jakaya Kikwete Cardiac Institute (JKCI) in Tanzania on Wednesday 12th July 2017, with the aim of borrowing experience from their neighboring country on how to combat heart disease and tackle a wide range of health challenges.
Since August 2015, Uganda embarked on plans to break ground for a new 200-bed hospital, to be named the Uganda Institute of Cardiothoracic Diseases, to replace the current Uganda Heart Institute (UHI). The new hospital, if completed, is expected to have three operating theatres, cardiac catheterization laboratories, an Intensive Care Unit, and research facilities.
As part of the mission to expand cardiologic services in Uganda, Ms Barbara, alongside a team of other 10 MPs visited Tanzania’s JKCI—touted by Tanzanians as East Africa’s largest heart institute. It has 103-bed capacity and attends to an average 700 outpatients and 100 inpatients per week. It was officially established in 2015.
