Expansion for private healthcare in Tanzania:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Tanzania's private healthcare sector has grown in leaps and bounds since the government ban on private hospitals was lifted in 1993. Following the abandonment of a socialist system, free healthcare has been replaced by patient cost-sharing, says Africa Health Marketletter. In 1994, health spending accounted for only 5% of overall government expenditure, compared with 30% in 1984. The private sector now accounts for around 30% of all hospital beds in Tanzania and treats almost half of all outpatients.
