Tanzanian health problems reflect those in other developing countries where the standard of living is low and housing and sanitation are inadequate.
The major cause of infant mortality can be attributed to preventable diseases such as gastroenteritis, acute respiratory infections and malnutrition.
In spite of the fact that various efforts have been made to extend primary health care coverage, particularly in rural areas, the scarcity of economic resources impedes the implementation of many health programmes.
However, only by maintaining primary health care as a major part of the country's development strategy can the needs of both rural and urban people be met.
