Author: Kerina Tull

This helpdesk report examines the maternal and sexual reproductive health situation in Tanzania. Maternal mortality in Tanzania has not benefited from similar trends as that of child mortality rates, which have decreased greatly in recent years. Sexual and reproductive health (SRH) is also challenging, especially for adolescents. The majority of data available includes interventions for maternal and newborn/child health. However, this review focused on reproductive and maternal health interventions. Due to the current pandemic, the effect of COVID-19 on RMNCAH services is also addressed. Key points highlighted in this abstract are main maternal health interventions, SRH programmes, key donors, gaps in the provision of maternal and sexual reproductive health services, the impact of COVID-19 on SRHR provision and SRHR gaps during COVID19 in Tanzania.
