Touch Foundation is dedicated to improving access to basic healthcare in Sub Saharan Africa. In Tanzania, we address the extreme shortage of healthcare workers by helping to educate and retain more skilled healthcare professionals and to expand and improve the second largest medical school in the country. The Foundation also provides expertise to the Tanzanian government to further expand healthcare worker training nationally and to address critical weakness in the wider health system.
Hundreds of newly trained healthcare workers supported by Touch Foundation are already saving lives. Currently, we are training 900 students in eight professional specialties. Upon graduation, nurses will deliver primary care, particularly in rural areas, assistant medical officers will deliver lifesaving interventions, and pharmacists will be equipped to administer preventive and curative medications.
Our focus is presently on Tanzania, where we are learning lessons what will be applied across Sub Saharan Africa. The U.S.Government describes Tanzania as a “regional anchor of stability.” Touch Foundation has chosen Tanzania as the anchor of its work.
Touch Foundation is classified as a 501(c)(3) organization. Click below to view our most recent independent audit and IRS Form 990.
