PUBLIC HEALTH Health problems flow freely across borders: knowledge and solutions should too
This scene is one small part of a remarkable healthcare renaissance — one that has put Tanzania on course to achieving the Millennium Development Goal of cutting under-five deaths by two-thirds ahead of the 2015 target date. Tanzania reduced child mortality by an astonishing 40% over five years in two test districts in the late 1990s with a simple top-up of 80 cents per capita to health budgets. Since then, Tanzania has rolled out health reforms nationwide. The result: dramatic improvements in health for children and adults throughout the entire country.
