DAR ES SALAAM, 5 February 2021 – An app to help Tanzanians access quality, safe and affordable health services nationwide has been launched by the Aga Khan Health Services Tanzania.
Pigia Daktari App, as the application is called, has been developed to support the government’s efforts in innovating with new, smart technology to enhance access to quality healthcare, said Prof. Hussein Kidanto, the Aga Khan University Associate Dean.
The App assists healthcare providers to acquire healthcare information, raise awareness on disease prevention and work with patients virtually to tackle health issues in a time of COVID-19.
Pigia Daktari App will address an emerging necessity and enable great access and utilization of safe quality health care without the patient having to visit a health facility, said Sisawo Konteh, chief executive officer for the hospital.
Patients anywhere in Tanzania will henceforth be able to have timely consultations with different specialists without having to visit Dar es Salaam.
