In Zanzibar, community health workers will be empowered with digital technology to manage care for families, pregnant women and children, building on the Ministry of Health and D-tree International’s award-winning Safer Deliveries program.
Berlin/Arusha, February 8, 2017 – Over the next few weeks, D-tree International, a US based nonprofit, will deliver a second batch of solar phone chargers from the German solar company Little Sun to community health workers (CHWs) in rural Tanzania. The additional chargers will be distributed in Zanzibar and will supplement devices already being used by health workers since June of 2016.
