Primary Medical Centres

The Aga Khan Primary Medical Centres (PMCs) are located in five urban towns of Tanzania, namely Dodoma, Iringa, Mbeya, Morogoro, and Mwanza. These centres are the first line of care and point of contact for the communities in which they operate. These centres are placed amidst populations with demanding health care needs, and where presently, quality primary health care services are very limited. The urban catchment population of the five PMCs is upwards of 1.1 million people, and as such, the PMCs are highly utilized, attending to approx. 100 to 150 outpatients daily.

The PMCs provide essential clinical services, meeting the needs of the populations they serve while offering the care necessary for a broad spectrum of conditions. These include acute communicable diseases, chronic non-communicable diseases, women's health, referral of complicated cases, routine mother, newborn, and child health (MNCH) services, and other services such as clinical laboratory, pharmacy, X-ray, ECG, ultrasound, and treatment room for minor procedures.

Overall, the PMCs provide a network of high quality health care in Tanzania's urban centres, and are currently being upgraded to learning sites, which will provide a unique opportunity for training of health professionals.

The PMCs have also been engaging with other development partners, including the Ministry of Health and Social welfare in the implementation of special projects, to provide services and build capacity.
