I am profoundly grateful to the MUHAS Digital Health Innovation Week 2023 organising committee. The Week provided me with an exceptional platform that propelled my innovation (Afya AI) to international stages. The meticulously planned sessions, inspiring speakers, and collaborative atmosphere left an indelible mark on my professional journey. I am sincerely thankful for connecting me with international collaborators whose guidance and support have been invaluable.
What Our People Say
Welcome to the 3rd Digital Health and Innovation Week 2023
Greetings and a warm welcome to all our esteemed website visitors,
We are both excited and honoured to welcome you on behalf of the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) to the official website for the 3rd Digital Health and Innovation Week. MUHAS, as many of you might be aware, stands tall as a premier higher-learning public institution in Tanzania, dedicated not just to health and allied training but also to ground-breaking research, insightful consultancy, and unwavering public service.
Our dedication to knowledge enhancement, technology adaptation in learning, and higher education training for health professionals has not gone unnoticed. In 2023, the Times Higher Education Magazine has bestowed upon us accolades that we proudly share with you: MUHAS ranks 1st in Tanzania, 3rd in Sub-Saharan Africa, 5th across the vast continent of Africa, and is featured among the top 500 universities globally. These recognitions are a testament to our commitment to excellence in every endeavour we undertake.
However, our journey continues. We've forged strong partnerships, inking Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) with a diverse set of esteemed universities and organisations worldwide. It is with this spirit of collaboration that MUHAS heads a remarkable consortium. This collective comprises key digital health and innovation figures and institutions, including the Tanzania and Zanzibar Ministries of Health, the President’s Office, Regional Administration and Local Government (PORALG), eGovernment Authority, LM International (LMI), Mälardalen University (MDU), Tanzania Health Informatics Association (TAHIA), and several other instrumental partners.
This innovation consortium is charting the path for digital health transformation initiatives. The 3rd MUHAS Digital Health and Innovation Week 2023 is at the forefront of these initiatives, seamlessly paired with the 3rd Tanzania Digital Health and Innovation Forum and Exhibition 2023.
Our joint goal is clear and resounding: to bolster digital health research and innovations, ensuring that the most fitting, affordable, and advanced digital health solutions and services find their way to addressing the health systems' challenges that many face today.
Mark your calendars for the 13th to 17th November 2023. We invite you to join us at MUHAS in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, for a week of insightful deliberations, knowledge sharing, and pioneering initiatives.
Thank you for visiting. We anticipate your participation and are committed to making the 3rd Digital Health and Innovation Week a transformative experience for all.
