Health system challenges in Tanzania are impeding the achievement of national development goals and consequently those relating to USAID’s programs on Maternal and Child Health (MCH), Malaria, HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB), and Family Planning (FP). These challenges include, but are not limited to, the shortage of health care workers, health commodity stock outs, and insufficient financing.

The Government of Tanzania’s (GOT’s) Big Results Now (BRN) initiative for 2016 aims to phase out high cost emergency power plants (EPP), increase generation capacity to 2,780 MW, reform the public utility’s (TANESCO’s) operations, and meet new demand through low-cost solutions, such as developing new gas resources and mini and off-grid renewable opportunities. Recent gas discoveries have quadrupled Tanzania’s known resources. A new gas pipeline, necessary for new gas generation from southern Tanzania to Dar es Salaam is under construction and scheduled for completion in late 2015. Tanzania has 1,226 MW of grid installed generation capacity to serve its population of over 47 million, and an additional 82 MW in isolated mini-grids. High reliance on expensive thermal and emergency generation sources that utilize diesel, heavy fuel oil or jet fuel have made the sector financially unviable.
