KEFA is partnering with Neurosurgical Institute of Zanzibar and the Mnazi Mnoja public Hospital to invest in a tool allowing surgeons to visualize bone structures intra-operatively. A CARM is the standard for intra-operative surgical care.
We have a donor willing to match KEFA’s donated funds:
A re-furbished unit from India: $20,000 usd
A new quality unit with warrantee: $60,000 usd
In January of 2015 the first dedicated Neurosurgical Institute on the Island of Zanzibar was opened. The Neurosurgical Institute is a first such project in a public hospital anywhere in Sub-Saharan Africa. The teams that serve within the hospital, have successfully completed over 800 procedures within the Manazi Mnoja Hospital System in the past six years.
These and multiple international teams continue to serve through the facilitation of a partnership between The Neurosurgical Education Foundation (NED) and Manzi Mnoja Hospital.
The hospital has been equipped with Microscopes, Endoscopes, surgical instruments, and ventilators which have been sourced and donated due to the efforts of NED and other generous donors. KEFA is partnering with Mnazi Mnoja Hospital, NED and the Institute to implement a sustainable model to provide some of the highest level of neurosurgical care and multispecialty development in the ESCA region.
