AJIRA HOSPITALI YA TAIFA MUHIMBILI

The Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) started as the Dar es Salaam
Medical School in 1963. The school then transformed into the Faculty of Medicine of the
University of Dar es salaam that in 1991 was upgraded and became a college–the Muhimbili
University College of Health Sciences (MUCHS). In 1996, the Faculty of Medicine that was
upgraded to a constituent College of the University of Dar es Salaam, with the aim of nurturing it
to a full-fledged university later on was merged with the Muhimbili hospital to create the
Muhimbili Medical Centre (MMC).

Over the years MUCHS made significant achievements in terms of increased student
enrollment and development of several new academic programmes. The Parliament Act No. 9
of 1991 that established MUCHS was repealed in 2005 through the universities Act No. 7 of
2005. Subsequently, in 2007 Article 1 of the Charter of Incorporation established MUHAS in line
with the Universities Act No 7 of 2005.

The objectives of the University are the advancement of knowledge, diffusion and extension of technology and learning, the provision of higher education and research and, so far as is
consistent with those objectives, the nurturing of the intellectual, aesthetic, social and moral
growth of the students at the University. MUHAS has two campuses; Muhimbili Campus and
Mloganzila Campus.
