Medical Translation Services Swahili
Providing adequate health care to their populations remains a major challenge for governments in Africa. Unsatisfactory and inadequate access to essential drugs and other healthcare commodities is a key limitation that impacts on people’s health in most developing countries. According to UNIDO report (2010) the population of Eastern Africa is predominantly young, with HIV/AIDS a leading cause of death. Approximately 70 per cent of the population (about 27.6 million) is at risk of malaria and also ranks 13th on the list of 22 high-burden tuberculosis (TB) areas in the world. In addition to the pandemic diseases, the prevalent disease burdens in the area are respiratory infections, diarrhoeal diseases, and skin diseases.
Trying to reach these areas of Eastern Africa with conventional languages (English and French) would be counter-productive and translating material into Swahili would make good monetary sense. MedTrans understand the needs of our clients when faced with entering the market of Eastern Africa. We have a team of well trained and professionally qualified life sciences/medical linguist who can assist you with your needs.
