Health care services is one of the serious challenges faced by Tanzania.
Health services are often not accessed by the very poor, and by women in particular.
Many poor households pay for health care by resorting to a number of short-term survival strategies, especially in times of emergencies. As a result they fall deeper into poverty and have limited resources remaining for other essential needs.
