Having left behind the December snow in Switzerland, we – the six participants in the Engineers in Residence program – have returned to the sunny skies and greenery of our homeland, Tanzania. We brought with us new toolkits of engineering and business skills, and even stronger ambitions to have an impact on the provision of healthcare in our country.
