Project 1

Name

Itete Medical Centre Project

Project Location

Ulanga District, Morogoro Region, Tanzania

Background

Itete is a large rural village of 7,200 people, comprised predominantly of WaPogoro farmers and WaSukuma pastoralists. Apart from farming, the only formal employment is with the Kilombero Valley Teak Company. This means that the village is completely dependent upon rainfall and a good harvest for its ongoing prosperity. Despite this precarious situation, the village has a good history of community action, fundraising and operating with outside agencies. The best example is the successful construction of a gravity fed water system, which pipes water from the neighbouring Mahenge Hills to the village, eradicating cholera and amoebic dysentery.

Challenges

Medical

The remote location of Itete makes the supply of drugs logistically difficult and basic facilities are also severely limited. The need for improved medical services is drastic. The major challenges are:

• Insufficient stocks of medication

• Inadequate general medical equipment

• Physical infrastructure in a dangerous state of repair

Education

The level of education is relatively high in the village due to the commitment of the teaching staff. However their efforts are hampered by a lack of funds and equipment which results in:

• School buildings in a dangerous state of repair

• Lack of basic teaching materials

Actions

Medical

Led by the local priest, the community are planning to rebuild a section of the old mission church to be used as a fully equipped and staffed hospital ward. To support the community in achieving this aim is our long term challenge, but in the short term we are doing the following:

• Supplying enough malarial treatments to meet the fluctuating seasonal need

• Funding an ongoing programme replacing existing beds, mosquito nets and basic diagnostic equipment

• Working in partnership to initiate and to complete the phased re-development of the old mission buildings

Education

In co-operation with teaching staff and local government to support the ongoing achievements of Itete’s schools, the Trust will:

Facilitate the development of links between schools in the UK and Itete to raise awareness of cultural differences and alternate ways of living

Raise funds to support the purchase of educational materials

Fujitsu PRIMERGY TX150 S7: Maximised mono socket tower server

 
The PRIMERGY TX150 S7 is a fully functioning mono socket tower server delivering industry leading levels of energy-efficient performance.
 
The PRIMERGY TX150 S7 all-round server is the world’s most energy-efficient in its class, setting a new SPECpower ssj2008 world record.  
 
It is ideal for SMEs and Branch offices for non-mission-critical infrastructures where the main focus is on expandability and availability.
 
For more information on the TX150 S7 please click here
 
PC PRO recommends the Fujitsu PRIMERGY TX150 S7
 

“For general systems management, its ServerView Suite software focuses purely on server management. Consequently, we found it much lighter to deploy and easier to use than Dell's Management Console or HP's Insight Control Edition, both of which try to manage everything on the network.”
 
“Physically, the TX150 S7 is up to the usual high standard of build quality we expect from Fujitsu. It's well designed internally, with easy access to key components, and there's room to expand”

“The TX150 S7 is extremely quiet. The processor and memory sockets are covered by a large shroud, which has its own cooling fan. The only other fan present is the one in the power supply. It's a good choice for small offices”

“Energy efficiency is a high priority. The PRIMERGY TX150 S7 sports the latest low-power Xeon L3426 and teams it up with single or dual 89% energy-efficient power supplies”

“Fujitsu's iRMC2 offers a similar level of remote management features to HP's iLO2 controller. It provides a tidy web interface with details about critical components including fans, processor, memory, voltages and the power supply”
 
“For general systems management, its ServerView Suite software focuses purely on server management. Consequently, we found it much lighter to deploy and easier to use than Dell's Management Console or HP's Insight Control Edition, both of which try to manage everything on the network.”

“Fujitsu's latest pedestal server may be an entry-level solution for SMBs but it packs in a hardware specification that many larger businesses wouldn't turn their nose up at.”

For the full review please click here
 
 Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY TX150 S7 Sets Ground- Breaking SPECpower Benchmark
 
·         Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY TX150 S7 all-round mono socket server is the world’s most energy-efficient in its class, setting a new SPECpower ssj2008 world record. The server achieved a best in class result of 2187 ssj_ops per single Watt of electricity.

·         Additionally, the TX150 S7 has achieved Best 1-socket server performance rates with SPECfb rate base2006, SPECint rate base2006 and SPECint rate 2006.
