Tanzania HIV Policy Making
SCIH supported process
Swiss TPH The Tanzanian government in cooperation with the Tanzania Commission of AIDS (TACAIDS) is in the final stages of drafting an HIV Prevention Strategy for the Tanzania Mainland. This process was supported by the SCIH (Swiss Centre for International Health/Swiss TPH) Senior Education Advisor Heinrich Heinrichs. The HIV Prevention Strategy for Tanzania Mainland is based on a thorough review of HIV epidemiology in Tanzania (magnitude, trends and drivers) and the current HIV prevention response. The aim is to guide comprehensive multi-sectoral HIV prevention efforts with a major emphasis on full scale proven and prioritised HIV prevention interventions that address the drivers of the epidemic, while ensuring that appropriate HIV prevention efforts are pursued in disproportionately affected population groups.
