Madaktari Africa was founded ...

www.madaktari.org [cached]

Madaktari Africa was founded by neurosurgeon Dr. Dilan Ellegala while on medical sabbatical in 2006 in rural Haydom, Tanzania.

...
Dr. Ellegala realized that the underlying problem--limited access to medical expertise in rural sub-Saharan Africa--was being treated with outside help, but it was not being solved. The doctors who were bringing medical expertise in to the country were doing great things, but the problem of healthcare access in Haydom remained after the doctors traveled back home.

With this in mind, Dr. Ellegala took notice of a man named Emmanuel Mayegga.
...
One day, after a morning meeting, Dr. Ellegala spoke to hospital advisor and former Mayor of Haydom, Naftal Naaman, and suggested, "Tanzanians should be doing these procedures.
...
Mayor Naaman and Emmanuel Mayegga both agreed with Dr. Ellegala, and the work that would soon be synonymous with Madaktari began.
...
After weeks of intensive neurosurgical training, Dr. Ellegala and Mayegga were working together in the operating room.
...
Everyone in the room smiled and shook hands, while Dr. Ellegala stepped away and clapped his hands loudly. He shouted, "You've got yourself a neurosurgeon now! I'm leaving!"

From Lynchburg to Tanzania

www.ourhealthvirginia.com [cached]

The involvement of the Centra physicians was prompted by neurosurgeon Dilan Ellegala, M.D., founder and medical director of Madaktari Africa ("madaktari" is "physician" in Swahili, the most-spoken language of Tanzania) when he was on staff of the Medical University of South Carolina before joining Centra in December 2010.

Meeting some of the Centra medical staff while interviewing for the post in Lynchburg, Dr. Ellegala's work with the African organization caught the interest of many of the physicians he met. Last summer in Lynchburg, Dr. Ellegala was host to Mohamed Janabi, M.D., Tanzania's director of cardiology and personal physician to the country's president.
...
Ellegala is intent on establishing a continuing presence of physicians from the United States, who will both see patients and train Tanzanian health care personnel with an eye on helping the medical community there to become self-sufficient.
