Abstract

Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a much‐needed service in Tanzania, to provide curative therapy for sickle cell disease (SCD), aplastic anaemia and haematological malignancies. The experience of other countries with limited resources has demonstrated that it is possible to set up such a service within similar economic and healthcare settings. This article summarises the current progress that has been made towards setting up an HSCT service in Tanzania and highlights the areas that require more work and investment to make the service a reality.
