A recently launched Twaweza policy brief generated widespread debate on health service and practice in Dar es Salaam.
The brief showed that short term interventions in healthcare were gaining ground, although work still remained to be done.
The key findings were around the experiences of residents of Dar es Salaam at government and private healthcare facilities.
“The Tanzania National Nets Programme has recorded substantial success in Dar es Salaam region” notes The Daily News.
While The Guardian highlights the brief’s conclusion that “access to healthcare facilities appears to be inclusive [but] more needs to be done to ensure the quality of care and treatment at these facilities is improved…”
The brief was also referenced in The Citizen and on the BBC, as well as covered by a number of Swahili newspapers and broadcast media, each of which focused on a different aspect of the survey’s diverse findings.
