On October 11 th , when the sun rises, all roads will lead to the Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre in Dar es Salaam for the 9th Tanzania Health Summit, or known by its popular hashtag as #THS2022.

The annual event brings together around 700 policymakers, health professionals, healthcare investors, the academia, hospitals, innovators, insurers and scientists of various categories in health.

For three days, a hybrid in-house and online gathering will feature more than 120 high-profile speakers from a dozen countries in Africa and beyond.

This year, the summit focusses on Tanzania’s plan, named the Health Sector Strategic Plan Five (HSSP V) which envisions a healthy and prosperous society that contributes fully to the development of individuals and the nation.

The summit strategically comes ahead of the Joint Annual Health Sector Technical Review Meeting and the Annual Health Sector Policy Review Meeting which are scheduled to take place in November and December respectively.

According to the THS President, Dr Omary Chillo, the resolutions made at the summit will feed into these important meetings.

“Your participation will provide an opportunity to discuss and respond to a series of dialogues with regards to the quality of healthcare in the country,” he said.

Policy engagements at the summit will revisit the HSSP V in which Tanzania pledged to reach all households with essential health and social welfare services, meeting as much as possible expectations of the populations.

THS is making collaborative efforts to ensure that no-one is left behind. As part of the efforts, Dr Chillo said, “We have collaborated with Amref Health Africa – Tanzania Office to coordinate the first Community Health Workers Symposium that will be conducted in parallel with the summit.”
The summit will be more interactive, with hi-tech facilities and platforms. “We will launch a mobile application to increase interaction and sharing of information among participants.”

Alongside the main theme and sub-themes, the summit will offer over 100 research and programs presentations, a diverse parallel health forums and symposiums from organizations, exhibitions, youth workshop, innovation, healthcare recognition awards and cocktail receptions.

About THS
Tanzania Health Summit is a non-profit health organization which was founded in May 2014. The aim was to promote healthcare to the underprivileged and vulnerable (70% of the population) who cannot easily access health services in the country. We focus on facilitating health information dissemination to the public taking into account that only 32.9% of the population has adequate literacy level in the country, mostly living in resource poor setting. In addition, we want to support youth (which comprise 32% of the population) to help build
a more sustainable future and prevent them from high-risk behaviors and practices. To contact the summit, click on this link: https://ths.or.tz/contact/
