Consultant and Teaching Hospital for the Lake and Western zones of the United Republic of Tanzania
Bugando Medical Centre is expecting to receive Tshs. 2.3 billions from CBM for the construction of an eye building
that will have an eye clinic, operating room and eye ward. The funds have been provided due to fact that Lake Zone
is having too many people with eye problems and BMC eye treatment area is becoming too narrow.
The money will also be used to buy eye care equipment, staff training, and outreach. In addition, BMC has also
contributed Tshs. 1 billion for the construction. The construction is expected to begin in November this year
and end next year. The hospital management thanked the CBM Board for the support as it will be of great benefit
to the lake regions residents and the general public.
