About Us

Welcome to KIBIHAS

Kibosho Institute of Health and Allied Sciences (KIBIHAS) with over two decades experience and expertise in running health-based training programs at the mid-level education (diploma), and operates under the board of trustees of the Catholic Diocese of Moshi (CDM). KIBIHAS primarily operated as St. Camillus, was initiated by the late Sr. Dr.  Hendrica, the former medical officer in charge of Kibosho Hospital. It was then inaugurated on December 11th, 2000, by the late Rev. Amedeus Msarikie, the first Bishop of Catholic Dioceses of Moshi. In February 2007, it changed its name to Kibosho School of Nursing after being granted complete registration (REG/HAS/029) and full accreditation to run the Nursing and Midwifery program. The institute is located in the Mt. Kilimanjaro slopes in Moshi Rural District, Sungu village, eastern part of the Kibosho Ward, about 14.6 kilometers from Moshi town in the Kilimanjaro Region, northern Tanzania. The road to the institution goes through vast banana plantations and zigzags along the steep slopes of the mountain. It is a 25-minute drive way from Moshi Town, and 60 minutes from the Kilimanjaro International Airport.

In the scope to re-fine the institution position and operations, nursing and midwifery program has been succeedingly leveraged by various programs including community health workers, clinical dentistry, diagnostic radiography etc. KIBIHAS is entrenched in enriching programs that are scarce and potential in the health sector as well as by regarding the needs of the community and society at large.
