I have LESS than two weeks until I return to the USA after being in Tanzania for 16 months. I can hardly believe it, and I certainly do not feel ready to leave my “home” in Bukoba. As bitter-sweet as it is, it is rewarding to see the progress we made over the last year.
The COSAD Clinic has been working very hard with forms, inspections, and other requirements to be a facility that accepts one of the most common insurances called NHIF. This month, after a lot of waiting, we finally are able to actively accept & bill for NHIF! We have already seen an increase in clients in just one week, so it is a great step for COSAD and the community.
I was fiercely hoping this step would happen before I left, and it did! Yay!
