Nyasatu Chamba

Dr. Nyasatu Godfrey Chamba is an Internal Medicine specialist at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC), and a lecturer at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College (KCMUCo), Moshi Tanzania. Dr. Nyasatu is currently the site Principle Investigator from KCMC, Moshi, Tanzania for the global randomized PROTID trial and her site will lead the Work Package focusing on identifying and addressing the gaps in the preventive and therapeutic management of individuals with DM and combined DM and TB in Uganda and Tanzania.



Dr. Nyasatu has been in active service primarily working in both inpatient and specialized outpatient clinics and in the critical care settings. Among these clinical setups there is the infectious disease clinic which primarily caters for HIV and TB infected individuals and the adult medical outpatient department which caters non-communicable diseases. She is incharge of the Diabetes Unit at KCMC. The exposure and managerial responsibilities to these clinics have made her realize the vulnerability in the long-term management among these patients. It is worth noting early on that both these illnesses present with various degrees of systemic immunosuppression and therefore treatment has to be individualized.
