Karibu Tanzania! It’s a pleasure to welcome you here.
As Program Manager for Health for Aga Khan Foundation in Tanzania, I work closely with local government authorities and communities to strengthen health care systems in Tanzania. These investments help improve health outcomes especially for women and children in rural areas.
At the onset of the pandemic, our long-standing partnerships with Global Affairs Canada and local communities allowed us to mobilize quickly, supporting local governments in procuring and distributing personal protective equipment, as well as much-needed medical and sanitation supplies. We also supported training for health workers and community health volunteers.
More than a year later, COVID-19’s impacts continue to be felt around the world. In Tanzania, community health volunteers remain at the forefront of challenging misinformation around the coronavirus, promoting healthy habits, and combating vaccine hesitancy.
As we continue to adapt to new realities, we remain committed to improving quality of life for all Tanzanians.
Thank you for your continued support.
