UNICEF Tanzania Annual Report 2016
UNICEF Tanzania achieved significant results both in terms of new evidence that is influencing policy and through its support to service delivery for children in focus regions. A UNICEF-supported child poverty study released in 2016 showed that 74 per cent of children in Tanzania are affected by multidimensional poverty and 29 per cent of children live in households below the monetary poverty line. These findings were used for high-level advocacy, together with equity-focused budget briefs that revealed trends in social sector financing and identified gaps in targeting resources for the poorest. Data and analysis from a draft out-of-school study supported by UNICEF Tanzania was used to inform the new five-year education sector strategic plan and a draft sub-sector strategy.
