Size Guide


As you gaze upon this stunning painting, you'll find yourself transported to the heart of Tanzania, where Muhimbili National Hospital stands as a beacon of hope for countless patients. This exquisite work of art captures the essence of Africa in all its raw, unbridled beauty, depicting scenes that are both familiar and yet utterly unique.

At the center of the painting, you'll find the hospital itself, a sprawling complex of buildings that houses some of the most skilled doctors and nurses in all of Tanzania. But this is more than just a hospital - it's a symbol of hope for those who are sick and suffering, a place where people can come to find healing and comfort in their darkest hours.

Surrounding the hospital, you'll see the vibrant streets of Tanzania, filled with bustling crowds, colorful markets, and the everyday rhythms of life. But amid all this hustle and bustle, there's a warning to be found: the phrase "Beware of Malaria" is emblazoned across the painting in bold letters, a stark reminder of the dangers that lurk in this part of the world.

Malaria is a major health concern in Tanzania, with the majority of the population living in areas where malaria transmission is endemic. According to the World Health Organization, Tanzania has one of the highest malaria burdens in the world, with an estimated 93% of the population at risk of contracting the disease.

Malaria is caused by a parasite that is transmitted through the bite of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. Symptoms of malaria can include fever, headache, chills, and flu-like symptoms. Severe cases of malaria can lead to complications such as organ failure, coma, and death.

Efforts to combat malaria in Tanzania have included the distribution of insecticide-treated bed nets, indoor residual spraying of insecticides, and the use of antimalarial drugs. While progress has been made in reducing the burden of malaria in Tanzania, challenges remain, including the emergence of drug-resistant strains of the parasite and the ongoing need for sustained investment in malaria control measures.

Malaria has a significant impact on the health and well-being of the Tanzanian population, as well as on the country's economy. It is estimated that the disease is responsible for approximately 10% of all deaths in Tanzania, with children under the age of 5 and pregnant women being particularly vulnerable. 

Efforts to control and eliminate malaria in Tanzania are ongoing, with a focus on increasing access to preventative measures such as bed nets and improving the quality of malaria diagnosis and treatment. Continued investment in malaria control measures is essential to reducing the burden of this devastating disease in Tanzania and improving the health and well-being of the Tanzanian population.

Despite the challenges that this region faces, there's a sense of resilience and strength that shines through in the painting. You can see it in the faces of the doctors and nurses, who work tirelessly to care for their patients. You can see it in the people on the streets, who carry on with their daily lives even in the face of adversity.

And perhaps most importantly, you can see it in the patients themselves - the men, women, and children who come to Muhimbili National Hospital seeking help and healing. This painting captures the very essence of their struggles and triumphs, and reminds us all of the importance of compassion, empathy, and hope in a world that can often be so difficult.

It's a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a powerful reminder of the importance of coming together in times of need.
