HEALTH ACCESS INTERNATIONAL BV
Who is our client
Health Access International (HAI) is an independent hospital and healthcare consultancy company. It aims to create affordable quality healthcare for everyone by helping to develop smart and effective healthcare infrastructure and processes.
The objective of this project is to extend the health care services of the Kinondoni Hospital in Dar es Salaam by partially converting a vacant 3-acre (including buildings facility) into a COVID-19 unit to offer isolation and specific care for patients.
Why we fund this project
FMO is funding this project as part of the Emergency Grant Facility, a support facility that was launched to help FMO’s clients and investees to battle the negative effects of COVID-19 on their business, staff and surrounding communities. The COVID-19 pandemic presents a huge challenge to Tanzania to meet current and potential capacity in the healthcare sector. The increase in corona cases and related social economic impact of the lockdown in the country require an immense effort (public and private sector) to weather the storm. Through this project, FMO supports directly the set-up of a COVID-19 unit, facilitated by its partner Health Access International, that can later be integrated into an existing project to build a new hospital.
