Reproductive and Child Health


The DCMC Trust Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) Clinic, opened in 2008, is known for delivering compassionate care in a clean, well-staffed facility. DCMC is committed to helping reduce the country’s grim statistics on maternal and child mortality and morbidity per year (source: WHO): maternal deaths, 13,000; neonatal deaths, 45,000; and deaths among children under age five, 157,000. Tanzania’s ongoing challenges to reduce mother/child mortality are:

lack of infrastructure, poverty, disease and a shortage of qualified medical staff and services.


  • Maternal and perinatal care, including antenatal care, delivery,
  • emergency obstetric care, and newborn and postpartum care
  • Diagnosis and management of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS,
  • including mother to child transmission (PMTCT)
  • Family planning
  • Gynecologist and pediatric consultations
  • Ultrasound
  • Immunizations and well checks for children under age 5
  • Management of childhood diseases
  • Nutrition counseling for both expectant mothers and children

* The RCH Clinic provides a delivery ward, birthing room, neonatal nursery and a full surgery facility for more complicated birth procedures. The Community Health Department emphasizes safe motherhood practices and Emergency Obstetric Care Training in rural villages to impact these statistics as well..
