AFRICAN LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACTION FORUM (ALGAF) PHASE IV SESSION V:LOCAL GOVERNMENT RESPONSES TO HIV/AIDS DAR ES SALAAM TANZANIA DR. Koku Kazaura, Betty Muze, Lilian Mzava FEBRUARY, 2004
INTRODUCTION: Dar es Salaam City is one of the areas in Tanzania that has been heavily affected by HIV/AIDS with a population 3,000,000 it is estimated to have 16,237 AIDS cases in (NACP surveillance report) NACP estimates that only one out of 5 AIDS cases is reported and so these figures are a gross under estimation.
INTRODUCTION (cont.) Statistics show the age distribution of HIV/AIDS cases is between the age of 15 – 49 years, with the highest prevalence in the age groups 25 – 34 and 30 – 39 years for males and females respectively. The City has a high percentage of young adults between the ages of 19 – 25 infected with HIV/AIDS.
INTRODUCTION (cont.) The rapid spread of the infection is attributed to relatively low impact of the interventions adopted and the element of behaviour change being a complex issue to achieve among people. The GoT has formulated National Multi-sectoral strategic framework (NMSF, 2003 – 2007) and the Health Sector Strategy (HSS, 2003 – 2006). These strategies have contributed significantly in intensifying and strengthening the interventions of mitigating the impact of HIV/AIDS.
INTRODUCTION (cont.) The NMSF and HSS have translated the National Policy on HIV/AIDS by providing strategic guidance to the planning of programmes, projects and interventions. These strategies stress on four thematic areas. - Prevention - Care, treatment and support - Impact mitigation - Cross cutting issues and enabling environment
