Faced with the critical state of MNCH, actors in Tanzania have taken steps to mitigate the issue. A Roadmap for the Reduction of Maternal and Newborn Mortality and Morbidity already exists. In order to accelerate the improvement of maternal, newborn and child health the Government of Tanzania and partners from the NGO, research, health professional and UN communities launched the Tanzania National Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (Tanzania PMNCH) one of the first in Africa to do so.
The Tanzania Ministry of Health led a Technical Consultation on the way forward for maternal, newborn and child health and for the Tanzania PMNCH in April 2007. This meeting, which was co-facilitated with The Partnership Country Support Working Group, demonstrated the commitment of the Tanzania maternal, newborn and child health actors and provided recommendations for the most effective ways to address these issues in the country.
