We’re on the frontline of HIV support in Tanzania, helping the country’s younger population better protect themselves from the risk of HIV.
The focus of efforts to address Tanzania’s HIV epidemic crosses several marginalised communities, including people who use drugs and men who have sex with men (MSM). Following the election of the current President in 2015, marginalised population groups have been targeted and face an increasingly hostile environment to live in.
Of particular concern is the country’s younger population, since children under the age of 18 are not allowed to test for HIV without the consent of a parent or guardian. We’re working to break down the stigma surrounding HIV and help more young people access these important services.
DID YOU KNOW?
- 1.6 million people in Tanzania are living with HIV.
- New HIV infection in children (aged 0-14) has reduced from 12,000 in 2015 to 8,600 in 2018

We worked with Tanzania Council for Social Development (TACOSODE) until July 2019, helping them to support other non-governmental and community-based organisations.
We now work with other partners in Tanzania through our existing programmes.
