Invest in Nutrition now for a better future
The levels of malnutrition in Tanzania continue to be unacceptably high despite intervention efforts undertaken. Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM), Iron Deficiency Anaemia, Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD) and Vitamin A Deficiency (VAD) are the main nutritional disorders of public health significance. Population groups most affected are children below 5 years of age, pregnant and lactating women.

Other programmatic areas of interest are nutrition surveillance, household food security, infant feeding in the context of HIV/AIDS and food fortification.
