Maternal and child health fact sheet
Progress, challenges and what we want to achieve.
UNICEF is supporting the Tanzanian government to strengthen the enabling national environment; improve the district health system to plan and monitor services; reinforce sub-national capacity to deliver quality reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child and adolescent health services; and empower individuals, families and communities to adopt healthy family practices. UNICEF provides focused support to four regions in the mainland with the lowest maternal and child health indicators (Mbeya, Songwe, Iringa and Njombe) and to Zanzibar. This support targets the most disadvantaged children, adolescents, and pregnant and lactating women.
