To make sure all community members get the medical help they need, Impact Zanzibar runs several and different specialized medical camps in and outside the hospitals. In Pemba - a sister Island of Zanzibar – whereby the medical help is more of a scarcity due to fewer numbers of specialized doctors in hospitals, we run several specialized camps in which surgeries are performed when needed. Over the years the camps grow from Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) and Obstetrics and Gynecology – OBS & GYN to six different specialties in which more than 2,000 people are treated ever year.

Furthermore, Impact Zanzibar has mobile clinics in Unguja, community camps in Pemba, oral hygiene camps and run clinics for the houses of the elderly, these programs brings medical help nearer to the community where by every year over 9,000 people are reviewed. In all of these camps and clinics health education are giving to the community and the patients are reviewed, managed medically and given spectacles if needed. Minor procedures like a tooth extraction are also performed and referrals to the referral hospital is given to those who need further medical investigation and/or surgery. Orthopedic workshops and clubfoot clinics —as well as its In Good Memory project—strives to help members of the community achieve independent mobility in the most difficult of circumstances.
