In the hospital partnership between the Cardinal Rugambwa Hospital (CRH) in the north of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and the Evangelisches Krankenhaus Alsterdorf, knowledge about the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy is exchanged. The clinic partners reflect on their personal attitudes towards people with epilepsy and/or disabilities.
The need for specialised treatment for people with epilepsy and/or disability in Tanzania is great. However, many individuals remain untreated because they are stigmatised in the population and hidden by their relatives. As a result, their participation in society is limited. People with epilepsy and/or disability consequently belong to a vulnerable population group that is not adequately cared for.
At the CRH, people with epilepsy and/or disabilities find an offer for diagnosis and treatment. This increases their participation in society.
