This two-day event was organized by John Kvasnicka, MD and Dr Mufwimi Saga MD.  Leadership teams consisting of physician,, nursing,  pharmacy and administrative leaders from each of 28 hospitals in the southern zone of Tanzania attended.

Each leadership team developed a quality improvement project that they would like to implement at their hospital and reported their plans to the group for feedback.
