Community Health Nursing Department

Who are we?
Department of Community Health

What do we do?
The Department of Community Health conducts most of its work out of two separate Units: the main unit at MUHAS campus, Dar es Salaam is concerned with theoretical teaching and research, while the communities in the regions closer to Dar es Salaam are used as a practicum site. During Community Medicine Rotation students visit dispensaries, Health centers, District Hospitals and learn the way these health facility levels differ in terms of service provision.

The programmes and courses we conduct/offer

1.    MD/DDS/BSc Environmental Health Sciences
2.    Environmental Health Sciences
3.    MPH Regular Track
4.    MPH Executive track
5.    Master of Bioethics
6.    MMed Community Health programme


The Department of Community Health teaches a nutrition course for semester 4 MD, DDS and BSc EHS students, prepares, coordinates and supervises their second year nutrition field practical and family case studies. It also teaches MD Semester 6 on the communicable disease control course and contributes in teaching nutrition course for the BSc Environmental Health students. For the undergraduate programmes, the department hosts the MD semester 7/8 community medicine rotations. The Department has one postgraduate programme, the Master of Medicine (Community Health) but the faculty is also involved in teaching several MPH courses offered by the School of Public Health and Social Sciences.
