Turkish doctors heads to Tanzania for medical help

A group of Turkish doctors left from the Aegean province of Izmir for Tanzania on Friday in an effort to offer medical help to the people of this country.

A total of 20 doctors from the Aegean Health Association (ESADER) departed from Izmir's Adnan Menderes Airport to carry medical aid to Tanzanians for the third time, the association's chairman Dr. Metin Akdag told AA.

Akdag said that a significant number of people had lost their lives due to "malaria" in Tanzania and the average duration of life in the country was 40.

Akdag noted that the Turkish medical team heading for Tanzania comprised of brain surgeons, cardiologists, orthopedists, pediatricians, dentists, infectious diseases experts and gynaecologists, moreover, they carried nearly 3,500 mosquito nets to be distributed to Tanzanians as a measure against malaria.

Turkish doctors would examine nearly 5,000 patients and carry out 60 surgeries in Tanzania's semi-autonomous island Zanzibar until August 8, Akdag also said.
