Tanzania Surveillance (GHSA) in Action

THE CHALLENGE: Tanzania has limited capacity, especially at the community level, to detect outbreaks and this weakens its ability to promptly respond and control public health threats or events in a timely fashion. 

THE SOLUTION: Amref Health Africa, the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Tanzania’s Ministry of Health launched a community-based disease surveillance training for volunteer community health workers and health care workers to investigate and report outbreaks at the community and district level. The ability to quickly identify and control disease outbreaks before they spread to other communities and countries help improve the health security of Tanzanians and other populations around the world.

Our work in Tanzania

Tanzania's escalating HIV epidemic is contributing to the country’s health crisis, as well as high maternal death rates and severe health worker shortages.

Amref Health Africa empowers communities and supporting the government at all levels to identify and address major health needs. We have tested half a million people for HIV in a programme that has been adopted and scaled up by the government.

More than 2.2 million people are living with HIV/AIDS in Tanzania and an estimated 2 million children have been orphaned as a result of the disease. Malaria is one of the biggest killers in Tanzania and accounts for the deaths of 80,000 children under-five every year.

Tanzania has one of the highest adolescent pregnancy rates in the world. In extreme cases gender-based violence, sexual abuse and female genital mutilation becomes the norm.
