Tanzania

What is the urgent social or environmental need you are addressing?

In South Sudan, there are only two health training institutions that annually admit a total of 90 students out of over 2000 students who apply each year. These two institutes graduate an average total of 60 health professionals annually. This has resulted into low access to quality health care with user rates estimated at 0.19 professionals per person per year as compared to the recommended WHO of 2.3 therefore compromising the provision of the Basic Package of Health Services.

 

What is your solution to this need? Describe your business strategy

Kajo-Keji Health Training Institute trains students to become Medical Clinical Officers (Doctors) and Medical Laboratory Technologist (Doctors) to treat sick people in South Sudan. They treat sick people in their clinic at cost recovery and give health education to the communities free of cost.

 

Convince us it will work. What milestones have you achieved?

There is a clear market need that is not being met in South Sudan for trained doctors, and clear unfilled demand for this training. Compared to the few other health training institutions in South Sudan, Kajo-Keji Health Training Institute’s costs are very low (about ⅕ the cost). Kajo-Keji Health Training Institute has trained 60 students, which have treated over 800 patients.
