The Hubert Kairuki Memorial University (HKMU) is a private non-profit university located in Dar es Salaam. The history of its origin dates back to when Prof. Hubert C.M Kairuku and his wife Mrs Kokushubira Kairuki had an idea to establish a university, which was moved by the situation in Tanzania after independence in 1961, whereby diseases, poverty and ignorance had defined the country.
The institution was initially established as Mikocheni International University of Health Sciences (MIUHS), with a focus to addressing training needs for health professionals in Tanzania, and in sub-Saharan Africa.
Its name was later changed to Mikocheni International University in 1998, and in 1999 the university’s name was finally changed to Hubert Kairuku Memorial University, in honour of the founder Prof. Hubert Kairuki, after his death.

HKMU has one campus called HKMU campus which is located in Mikocheni. The most notable faculties of the university are Faculty of Medicine as it was established the same year as the university and has graduated notable alumni, and the Faculty of Nursing as it is known for offering outreach health and consultancy services to the population in the neighbouring communities since 1999.
The university has as mission to educate liberally and broadly, qualify men and women to advanced frontiers of knowledge through research, and provide consultancy and advisory services to the public.

HKMU provides hostel for both male and female students. It houses the Kairuku hospital which serves as a training hospital to the Kairuki School of Nursing. The university as well provides a library and electronic resources to its students.
HKMU has under construction a new campus in Boko which will consist of Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Nutrition, Public Health, Biotechnology, Social Sciences and medical laboratory sciences, lecture theatres, modern teaching and research laboratories, teaching health centre, students’ hostel, cafeteria and accommodation for visit faculty members, recreation and sports facilities, and conference centre.

Hubert Kairuki Memorial University is located in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Other universities located in this city are University of Dar es Salaam, Kampala International University in Tanzania, Tanzania Institute of Accountancy, the Institute of Finance Management, and Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology.

Dar es Salaam is the former capital and the most populous city of Tanzania. It served as the capital city of Tanzania from 1961 to 1973, having been the administrative and commercial centre of the region as far back as the 1900s.
Dar es Salaam went through a tumultuous period of growth between 1973 and the late 1990s, before finally emerging in the 2000s as one of Africa’s leading cities. It experienced rapid urbanization rates as businesses opened and flourished, leading to growth in the construction sector.
Dar es Salaam experiences a tropical wet and dry climate, typified by hot and humid weather throughout the year.  Average temperatures range from 20.9 degrees Celsius to 30.7 degrees Celsius. The total population of Dar es Salaam is just over 6.5 million people.
It is Tanzania’s most important city as far as business and government are concerned, although it is largely dependent on agriculture for employment. It is characterized by high concentrations of trade and manufacturing, compared to other parts of Tanzania.

Tourism is a key attraction in Dar es Salaam, with the town boasting two museums, botanical gardens, and several beaches. The Dar es Salaam Marine Reserve is a popular spot for day trips from the city.  The Udzungwa Mountains National Park offers breathtaking views and friendly local guides for bold and adventurous travellers.
It is also home to the country’s only stock exchange. In addition, it boasts a shopping mall, a large fish market, a Central Business District spread across several wards and even a natural harbour.
