The Dar es Salaam Region has now approved Buguruni Anglican Health Centre to receive patients from ICHF (Improved Community Health Fund). ICHF is Tanzania’s new health insurance for people making less than 70 cents a day (the Tanzanian poverty standard). They receive a year’s basic healthcare for $12/enrollee/year. The government estimates that 60,000–80,000 of the 420,000 in our Buguruni and Vingunguti area qualify. With health insurance, they will not have to do without healthcare or find very limited charity care. Recipients can get care before they become desperately sick.
