Tanzania's Community Health Workers

Today, World Vision supports an estimated 1,700 community health workers in Tanzania. World Vision Tanzania partners with the Tanzanian MOH to directly implement CHW programming, and currently supports CHWs in grant areas as well as in 55 ADPs in 13 (out of 30 total) regions in Tanzania. CHWs supported by World Vision Tanzania are trained to provide the most essential life-saving interventions such as emergency front line care and can save children's lives from many if not most of the major preventable child mortality causes like diarrhoea, pneumonia and malaria.
