Healthcare Campus

Karatu, Tanzania, Africa

Off-grid, self-contained campus

We traveled to Karatu, Tanzania to help the Foundation for African Medicine and Education (FAME) secure land and prepare a master plan for a new medical services campus serving the 185,000 people in the Karatu District of Tanzania. The 22-acre campus now has a diagnostic center and lab, a 32-bed hospital with two operating rooms, and a birthing center. The off-grid, self-contained campus, located three degrees south of the equator employs natural daylight, photovoltaics with battery backup, and an extensive rain harvesting system.
