Faith-based Organization Role in Health Systems in Tanzania
CCIH produced a series of pieces exploring health in a number of countries and the faith-based health care landscape. In each country, we spotlight a few faith-based organizations and how they impact health care services in the country. Tanzania: FBOs are the largest providers of hospital services in Tanzania, owning 41.1% of hospitals, and the second largest provider of health services, owning 23.3% of total health infrastructure. This piece features the work of Mennonite Central Committee, Friends of Shirati and the Christian Social Services Commission and their contributions to the Tanzanian health system.
