18 Posts at Wizara ya Afya – Laboratory Scientists Grade II
 
2.0THE NATIONAL HEALTH LABORATORY (NHL)
Laboratory services in Tanzania have evolved from the first Government Clinical
Laboratory, which was established at Ocean Road in Dar es Salaam in 1897 by Dr.
Robert Koch, the German Bacteriologist. During the 1960s, the laboratory became the
Central Pathology Laboratory (CPL) as an independent department of the Ministry of
Health (MOH). The CPL was relocated to Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) in Dar es
Salaam in 1971, after the German and Swiss Governments provided assistance for
construction of new laboratory premises. Since then, Tanzania has never had a
dedicated National Health Laboratory (NHL), nevertheless, in the interim, this role was
assumed by the National Health Laboratory Quality Assurance and Training Centre
(NHLQATC), which was constructed through Development Partner’s funds to support
HIV/AIDS interventions.
