About Ujumbe Consultancy

Connecting technical innovations and health
Mobile phones are the future of health in Tanzania

Tanzania has a mobile phone penetration of more than 80%. We believe that mobile phones are an excellent entry point for improving health and healthcare. We use innovative technologies tailored at existing means of communication in the community. Together we work on better health for all. Ujumbe Consultancy was founded by Kennedy, an IT engineer and entrepeneur, and Marion, a health scientist. They firstly started working together with a small dispensary in a rural area educating pregnant women through SMS. This project was followed by different other projects sending SMS to pregnant women, children and HIV positive individuals. Their continuous expansion of ideas led to the foundation of Ujumbe Consultancy.
