CCBRT works with the Tanzanian government to provide free and subsidized services to low-income Tanzanians in four core areas: ophthalmology; orthopedics and physical rehabilitation; plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery; and maternal, newborn and child health (including fistula),
CCBRT was established in 1994. In 2004 CCBRT started offering private services to help subsidize health care costs, and in 2018 a new private clinic building was opened. Its CEO from 2006 to 2018 was Erwin Telemans. Brenda Msangi was appointed CEO in December 2018.
Access for All
There are 4.2 million Tanzanians living with a disability. People with disabilities are often among the poorest and most marginalised in society. Disability has a significant impact on health, employment and education. More than half of children with disabilities do not attend school as a result of their health or activity limitations. Illiteracy among Tanzanians with a disability is 48%, compared to 25% among those with one. This seriously hinders social and economic development.
The exclusion of people with disabilities from the workplace, either through discrimination or inaccessible work environments, costs Tanzania $480 million every year – 3.76% of the country’s GDP. People with disabilities often live in severe poverty due to the challenge of securing a steady income amid widespread exclusion. With only 3.1% receiving income from paid employment, households headed by persons with disabilities experience greater levels of poverty.
CCBRT recognises the challenges that people with disabilities and their families are confronted with on a daily basis. We do everything we can to alleviate the obstacles, improve quality of life and empower people with disabilities to fulfill their potential..
