TAASISI YA MKAPA FOUNDATION YAZINDUA RASMI AWAMU YA PILI YA MRADIWA MKAPA FELLOWS

Taasisi ya Benjamin William Mkapa HIV/AIDS Foundation (BMAF) kwa ufadhili wa washirika wake mbalimbali yakiwemo mashirika ya maendeleo, makampuni na watu binafsi, imezindua rasmi awamu ya pili ya mradi wa Mkapa Fellows. Mradi huu unalenga kuimarisha huduma za ukimwi na afya ya mama na mtoto katika maeneo ya vijijini.

Itakumbukwa kuwa Taasisi ya BMAF ilifanya harambee mwezi Juni 2012 na kupokea ahadi za jumla ya Sh.3.2 bilioni ili kufanikisha hatua ya kwanza ya mradi. Kufuatia juhudi hizi, mradi huu umezinduliwa rasmi mwaka 2013.

Mradi wa Mkapa Fellows awamu ya 2 utatekelezwa kwa miaka mitano (2012-2017) na unalenga kuajiri “Fellows” ambao ni wataalam wa afya 150 na, makatibu wa afya 30 watakaofanya kazi kwenye wilaya 15 za Tanzania Bara na Zanzibar. Mradi pia unalenga kujenga na kuweka vifaa kwenye vyumba vya upasuaji 30 vitakavyotoa huduma za akina mama wajawazito. Aidha pia mradi huu unalenga kutoa mafunzo kwa Fellows na watumishi wengine waliopo kazini katika masuala ya ukimwi, kuzuia maambukizi ya ukimwi kutoka kwa mama kwenda kwa mtoto na Huduma ya dharura ya mama mjamzito.

Mradi wa Fellows utatekelezwa katika hatua mbili, ambapo hatua ya kwanza itakuwa kuanzia mwaka 2012 hadi 2014, na hatua ya pili itakuwa kuanzia mwaka 2015 hadi 2017. Katika hatua ya kwanza ambayo inaanza mwaka huu 2013. Jumla ya wataalam wa afya ( Fellows) 32 wataajiriwa na kwenda kufanya kazi katika vituo vya afya tisa (9) kwenye wilaya sita (6) za Sumbawanga Vijijini, Nkasi, Kalambo, Kahama, Kishapu na Biharamulo.

Kabla ya kwenda kwenye vituo vya kazi, Fellows hao watapatiwa mafunzo ya kutoa matibabu kwa wagonjwa wa ukimwi,na mafunzo hayo yatafanyika Iringa, mwezi Februari mwaka huu. Aidha mafunzo ya huduma ya dharura ikiwemo upasuaji kwa akina mama wajawazito, yatafanyika kwa miezi minne (4) kuanzia Juni 2013 , kwa Fellows watakaojiriwa na watumishi wengine waliopo kazini kwenye wilaya husika.

Hali kadhalika, ujenzi wa vyumba vya upasuaji nane (8) na ukarabati wa chumba kimoja (1) cha upasuaji vitaanza kuanzia mwezi Aprili 2013 katika Wilaya za mradi. Mradi huu pia utajumuisha utoaji wa huduma za mkoba, elimu ya afya na uhamasishaji kwa wanaume, wanawake na vijana wanaoishi kwenye maeneo ya jirani na vituo vya afya.

Taasisi ya BMAF inatoa shukrani za dhati kwa wadau mbalimbali waliochangia mradi huu. Shukrani za kipekee zinatolewa kwa “Irish Aid” kwa mchango wao mkubwa kwenye mradi huu. Pia tunashukuru makampuni mbalimbali ambayo yamechangia hatua hii ya kwanza ya mradi wa Mkapa Fellows zikiwemo; African Barrick Gold, Mfuko wa Pensheni wa NSSF, Bank M, Quality Group, Clouds Media, Benki ya NBC, NHIF na Benki ya Stanbic.

Tunawashukuru washirika wetu wote na tunatarajia kuendelea na ushirikiano, wakati tukianza mwaka huu 2013, na tunapozindua rasmi awamu ya pili ya mradi wa Mkapa Fellows katika wilaya 6 za mwanzo.

IMETOLEWA NA AFISA MTENDAJI MKUU TAASISI YA BENJAMIN WILLIAM MKAPA HIV/AIDS FOUNDATION.

MAELEZO KWA WAHARIRI:

Mkapa Fellows ni mradi bunifu ulioanzishwa hapa Tanzania na Watanzania na kutekelezwa na Taasisi ya Mkapa Foundation kwa kushirikiana na wadau mbalimbali, wakiwemo Serikali ya Norway na Shirika la Clinton Foundation. Mradi huu umeweza kuvutia na kubakiza zaidi ya asilimia 90 ya watumishi wa afya walioajiriwa kufanya kazi kwenye wilaya 33 za Tanzania vijijini katika awamu ya kwanza ya mradi.

Katika awamu ya kwanza ya mradi ulioanza kuanzia mwaka 2005 hadi 2010, matokeo yalikuwa ongezeko mara tano ya idadi ya wagonjwa waliopatiwa huduma za madawa ya kupunguza makali ya virusi vya Ukimwi katika wilaya ambazo Fellows walikuwepo kutoa huduma hiyo.. Zaidi ya Vituo 120 vya kutolea huduma kwa wagonjwa wa ukimwi viliongezeka kupitia uwepo wa Fellows. Asilimia 60 ya Fellows waliuhishwa katika ajira ya Serikalini na hivyo kuwepo na uendelevu wa jitihada zilizoanzishwa na mradi.

Serikali ya Tanzania ilitambua uwezo wa Taasisi ya BMAF katika kuchangia na uimarishaji wa masuala ya Raslimali watu katika sekta ya afya kwa kutumia miradi bunifu. Hali hii imepelekea ushirikiano zaidi kwenye miradi mingine, ukiwemo “Mradi wa ajira ya dharura”; na “Mradi wa Uimarishaji wa Mifumo ya Afya”ambayo yote miwili imefadhiliwa na Mfuko wa Dunia wa kupambana na ukimwi, kifua kikuu na Malaria ( Global Fund). Miradi hii miongoni mwa matokeo yake ni kuweza kuajiri zaidi ya watumishi 400 ambao wameimarisha huduma za Ukimwi, Kifua kikuu na Malaria nchini, kujenga nyumba za watumishi wa afya 90 katika vituo vya tiba nchini na mengi mengineyo.
