Purposes and Objectives
Over the last three years, UNICEF Tanzania has been supporting the Ministry of Health, Gender, Elderly and Children through the National AIDS Control Program (NACP) to improve VMMC services in the country. The support has been continuously for the past three years through upstream support to the NACP and the VMMC technical working group (TWG). To date, UNICEF’s technical support is understood as having contributed to improved program data analysis, coordination and the standardization of the national VMMC package and guidelines. This work was supported through a dedicated technical assistance staff who has completed the TA support to the government.
Going forward UNICEF would like to focus on a few strategic deliverables which remain to be achieved under the current donor and government agreements which necessitate the recruitment of a technical consultant to support the achievement of these deliverables.

For every child, Advocates
A series of localized emergencies happen in Tanzania every year requiring a timely and appropriate response. Small to medium scale emergencies, both natural and man-made hazards including drought, floods, refugee influxes, earthquakes and epidemics often affect livelihoods, destroy infrastructure and cause food insecurity and health problems. Moreover, climate change, deforestation and manipulation of natural drainage channels have increased the risk of floods and displacement of people, changing weather patterns and consequent uncertainties, particularly to farmers. The country has experienced periodic cholera outbreaks, including a widespread outbreak since August 2015 until 2019. In May 2019, Tanzania was exposed to a threat of Cyclone Kenneth which posed a potential threat to some regions in the southern regions mainly Mtwara, Lindi and Ruvuma.
Tanzania is one of the five countries (Angola, Central Africa Republic (CAR), Republic of Congo, and Zambia) classified as priority 2 by WHO as being exposed to potential risk of cross border contamination of EVD from DRC. Countries prioritized as level 1 are; Burundi, Rwanda, South Sudan and Uganda. Currently there is no EVD reported in Tanzania, however, there is a high likelihood of EVD importation into the country from DRC or any other neighboring countries through both formal and porous borders due to social-cultural and economic cross border movements among these countries.
