Tanzania and India have signed an agreement to build a 300-bed heart hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The joint venture agreement was undertaken by Apollo Hospitals of India and two Tanzania institutions, the National Social Security Fund and the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.

The hospital will be constructed at the University of Dar es Salaam.

Apollo Hospitals will invest up to INR2.5bn ($54.6m) in the project, according to the agreement.

Tanzania president Jakaya Kikwete told reporters that the hospital will help Tanzania save almost TZS11bn ($7m), the amount spent in treating patients abroad in 2010.
