Welcome from Director

Director – Dr Haji. S. S. Shemhilu

Welcome to our website. We hope that this website will showcase the work of Primary Health Care Institute- Iringa, make information much more accessible, and keep our partners and collaborators abreast of developments.

The PHC Institute Iringa was established in July 1990 by the Ministry of Health. The aims of establishing the institute were:

  • Enhance the performance of health workers and other personnel in health related sector in Primary Health Care Management at all levels.
  • Facilitate the design of improved patterns of health care by enhancing community participation, integration and multi-sectoral collaboration.
  • Explore other new ways of enhancing performance and improving patterns of health care.

The Primary Health Care Institute Iringa is located within the beautiful Southern Highlands in Iringa Municipality. It is one km from the main town centre. The famous unspoiled Ruaha National Park and Isimila Old Stone age site are within easy reach from Iringa.
