Tanzania

Country Situation

Adult HIV prevalence (ages 15-49) in Tanzania was estimated to be 5.3% in 2014. With 84,000 pregnant women living with HIV delivering, it is one of the the Global Plan countries with the highest burden of PMTCT. Between 2009 and 2014, Tanzania has seen a 72% decline in new paediatric HIV infections – from 26,000 to 7,200.

In 2014, 90% of pregnant women living with HIV received ARVs for PMTCT, while only 29% of children living with HIV were on treatment.

Tanzania has adopted WHO Option B+ regimen for prophylaxis and a costed national PMTCT scale-up plan (2011-2015) is in place.

 

National EMTCT Plan – Tanzania

PMTCT services have been implemented in Tanzania since 2000 and a lot of progress has been made since then. By 2010, 94% of all Reproductive and Child Health facilities were providing PMTCT services reaching about 70% of the pregnant women with ARV prophylaxis. Undoubtedly, Tanzania has seen major progress in the prevention of HIV transmission from mother to child. Such progress however, has often been uneven, not reached all women and children in need and not addressed all the major interventions that will contribute to eMTCT.

In quest to accelerate progress in achieving virtual elimination of new infections in children, this plan has been developed to provide guidance on critical interventions, targets and resources required at all level. The plan has been developed based on an equity focused bottleneck analysis of the PMTCT programme.

This plan highlights the current status of implementation of the PMTCT programme and areas where progress has been made towards achievement of eMTCT targets. Also, it identifies areas where progress has stalled or lagging behind. It sheds light on some of the major bottlenecks that have affected programme implementation and proposes targets, strategies and resources that will facilitate achievement of virtual elimination of new infection among children in Tanzania.

Country Milestones

  • In Progress

    Countries have conducted an expenditure analysis, harmonized expenditure categories as needed, identified financing gaps in their action plans and have develped and begun to implement a strategy increasing financial assistance from domestic and international sources to support the national EMTCT plan.

    National EMTCT plans are costed.

    National guidelines on PMTCT and infant feeding in line with WHO 2010 recommended guidelines on ARVs for PMTCT.

    National annual EMTCT progress report includes community (civil society) analysis of progress and feedback from civil society is reflected in revisions to national EMTCT operational plans. Community engagement milestone has been revised and will be reported in June 2013.

    Baselines for essential commodity needs for EMTCT have been established.

    Relevant support and management capacity has been increased (IATT focal points in place).

    Policy review has been conducted to dentralize and task shift essential HIV activities to the primary care and community levels.

    Country has reported on estimated number of new HIV infections among children averted and number of mothers kept alive.

    Estimated number of new pediatric infections reduced by 50% from 2009 levels in at least 10 priority countries.

    Relevant targets met in at least 50% of districts in the country.

    Every district reports regular supplies of drugs and commodities without stock outs.
