And we never give up.
For every child, strength
Despite
progress in children’s survival, Tanzania is a long way from providing
all children and adolescents with an equitable chance to survive and
thrive. Tanzania has brought its under-5 mortality rate to less than
one-third of its 1990 level, but the pace of mortality reduction has
slowed in recent years, and maternal and neonatal mortality remain high.
Every year, about 100,000 children under age 5 are lost, 40,000 of whom
die in the first 28 days of life. Another 40,000 babies are lost to
stillbirth. Almost one-third of under-5 children are stunted, and
preventable and treatable illnesses cause more than half of their
deaths. Adolescence is also a perilous stage. Teenage pregnancy is
common, and adolescent girls have disproportionately high rates of new
HIV infection. Anxiety and depressive disorders are gaining prevalence,
while injuries and interpersonal violence affect many adolescents,
especially boys.

The quality of primary health care services and
social norms and practices are at the heart of the problem. The health
sector is underfunded, and per capita allocations vary widely by region,
contributing to vast inequities in health outcomes. As infrastructure
projects have increased the quantity of health services in recent years,
quality has continued to suffer. The public health service has only
half the human resources required, and health workers rarely receive the
training and support they need to provide quality services. The health
management information system is fragmented and inaccessible.
Improvements in the availability of essential medicines and commodities
have been made, but their availability is often not reliable or
consistent. Many communities and families lack the knowledge, skills,
and motivation to address harmful social and gender norms and to adopt
and promote healthy and beneficial practices, including those related to
positive parenting and early childhood development
