The best bet would be to request a medevac to the nearest private hospital in either Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Mwanza, Mbeya or Morogoro. Steer clear of the overcrowded and under-resourced government hospitals. For serious medical emergencies you should medevac directly to Nairobi where you will find East Africa’s foremost healthcare facilities, including the Aga Khan University Hospital and Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital.
