Our History

Tanzania Rural Health Movement is a registered non-profit community-based organization based in Mwanza, Tanzania. Our focus is on provision of health services, health research and environmental sustainability and health.

Tanzania Rural Health Movement (TRHM) has been in operation since 2014, originally founded by a medical student Marko Hingi with support from his fellow students at the Catholic University of Health and Allied Sciences.

Tanzania Rural Health Movement aims to establish and improve health interventions that meet major public health challenges facing Mwanza, the second biggest city in Tanzania. For the past few years, TRHM has worked on small projects such as the Open Access for All Project, as well as larger projects such as Mwanza Community First Response Project, which focuses on providing free pre-hospital care services in partnership with fire fighters, motor taxi drivers and police officers.
