In 2018, CUAMM’s 50th year in Tanzania, we continued to strengthen the national health service with interventions in 6 regions (Iringa, Njombe, Simiyu, Shinyanga, Dodoma, and Ruvuma) in 24 districts. In rural areas, our focus has been on the health of mothers and children, birth attendance, and newborn care. Our project continues in the Dodoma region to improve the water quality and children’s nutritional status. Prevention measures in the community have promoted sustainable eating habits to fight chronic malnutrition and provide medical treatment for severely malnourished children. We have also focused on the cognitive development of children under five. In the regions of Shinyanga and Simiyu, we have continued Test and Treat for HIV, including by organizing special events.
