Stock out or in stock?

Two out of three families in Tanzania report that one family member was ill in the last month. Although initial advice and treatment may be sought at a drug store, most of these patients will eventually look for treatment at a health facility. Can patients get the medicines they require at these facilities? How often are stock outs reported? This brief reports new findings on these and other questions on access to medicines in Tanzania, presenting the most recent data on this topic available from health facilities and patients.

SIM Cards: A taxing issue

Access to Information

Almost all (97%) citizens recognise the picture of H.E. President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, while less than 1 out of 10 of them can explain MKUKUTA (7%) or Vision 2025 (5%). The best known high profile national policy is Kilimo Kwanza which 3 out of 10 citizens (33%) have heard of and can explain. After President Kikwete, less than half (48%) can identify Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda. At the same time, almost half (42%) of citizens would like government to make more data and information public.
