What do you call a doctor's certificate / medical certificate then? (A piece of paper a doctor gives you to prove, usually to your employer or school, that you are sick. It might not really be a thing in Tanzania and Kenya, I guess.)

Tried to find that in the "Swahili Medical dictionary and Phrasebook" . Didn't find it. It seems to be a useful book anyway, for those who have a special interest...

Cheti = certificate, therefore cheti cha daktari = doctor's certificate. 12052020

Who else would give you a prescription, but the doctor?

Cheti cha maumivu?? - sick note - but what would that mean in a Tanzanian context? Bush telegraph would deliver the information, anyway!
