Philips Medical Systems of the Netherlands last month won a $29.2 million contract with the Republic of Tanzania’s Ministry of Health to rehabilitate and modernize almost 100 regional and district hospitals across Tanzania. The deal extends over seven years and is to be financed 40% by the Tanzanian government and 60% by the Dutch government through its Development-Related Export Transactions Program (ORET).

The project includes the supply and installation of medical imaging and other medical equipment, clinical site preparation, maintenance for the contract period, and project management. Philips will provide Tanzanian hospitals with x-ray and ultrasound systems, and it will train medical, paramedical, and technical staff. The project’s first shipments should begin in June and are expected to be complete by December 2000. Philips has similar contracts in Zimbabwe, Ghana, and Gujarat, India (SCAN 1/21/98).
