More than 2.7 million Tanzanian children under 5 were estimated to be stunted and more than 600,000 children under 5 suffering from acute malnutrition in 2015. The Government of Tanzania, with support from UNICEF and other partners, recently reaffirmed its commitment to end malnutrition at the third Joint Multi-sectoral Nutrition Review (JMNR), which took place in Dar es Salaam on 26–28 October 2016. It is the first country in Sub-Saharan Africa to conduct a multi-sectoral review.

Ysra, 13, Samary, 15, and Hadija, 14, are busy checking that the girls’ toilet block in their school is clean and no rubbish is left lying around. These three adolescent girls are not cleaners; they are Standard Seven students at Bahati School in Temeke Districk, in the southern part of Dar Es Salaam. Just three years ago, Bahati School did not even have functioning toilets, let alone a toilet block for the exclusive use of girls.
