During the camp hundreds of people turned up at Diamond Jubilee Hall in Dar es Salaam for free medical checkup and treatment. Identifying the diseases, a surgeon, Dr Asif Ali, said clinical and technical measures should be taken to determine the cause of the problems.

“I have found that here in Tanzania hernia, diabetes and high blood pressure are among the diseases that afflict many people; not only here but also in other African countries where we have provided such services,” said Dr Ali, urging experts to conduct a thorough research to determine the causes of the diseases and provide a complete treatment and curb from contracting others.

Ms Habiba Abdalah, one of the patients who went for checkup said the service was good and she has been able to get medicines for her health challenge.

Another beneficiary, Ms Jumanne Bakari said he was happy with the service he received because he was given medication for free.

“I am grateful for these doctors ... I have received good care and they also gave me enough medication. It brings a good image and some citizens have been able to access the services and everyone who received services and were satisfied. “I have received enough medicine. I wish they continue to be in the country because their services are helpful especially for low-income people to manage health insurance. I have been given medicines to use for five months, something which could not be possible in other health facilities,” she said.
