About

The Community Public Health study abroad program, in partnership with several medical facilities and NGOs, explores and observes maternal and child healthcare practices and challenges in Northern Tanzania.  Students gain great insight into the cultures represented in Tanzania, including the Maasai sub-culture, which are at the core of this stable democratic and tolerant nation. Tanzania, one of the safest countries in Africa, has a population of over 50 million people.  Arusha, the capital city and economic hub of the Arusha Region, is home to several government, private and mission run hospitals, as well as dozens of clinics and dispensaries.

Students are equipped with:


  • An understanding of medical norms and practices in pediatric, maternal and maternity care facilities in Tanzania


  • Exposure to the work of an organization dedicated to reducing infant mortality due to obstetric fistula


  • Cross-cultural teaching and communication skills through creation and delivery of healthcare workshops to members of a women’s shelter and women from a traditional Maasai community


  • Greater insight into the cultural perceptions surrounding medicine and medical care in Tanzania


  • A more in-depth understanding of the medical challenges facing Tanzania’s poorest communities, especially women, children and those with disabilities


  • An expanded world view through authentic, daily cross-cultural interaction with professionals and patients in the communities you engage with
