T-MARC Tanzania’s effort in fighting against HIV/AIDS and address health disparities among communities

DAR ES SALAAM, (DECEMBER 02, 2022). T-MARC Tanzania is a key partner of the Tanzanian government, working closely to achieve Tanzania’s vision of “Equality”. 

As a locally managed, non-governmental organization, T-MARC Tanzania is mandated to make sustainable health and social impact in the lives of Tanzanians through the application of core competences in social marketing, communication, project management and partnership.

T-MARC Tanzania provides quality services and health products for disease prevention, through innovative interventions and partnership to address key social and economic challenges - thereby contribute to the wellbeing of targeted communities in Tanzania. 

Statistics shows that over 50% of Tanzanians who are HIV-positive know their status. While there is a need to heighten risk perception and perceived benefits of knowing HIV status, it is critical to fight inequities and narrow HIV service gaps so we can attain the goal of ending AIDS by 2030. 
Parallel to that, T-MARC Tanzania is narrowing the prevention-effort gap that exists in our communities by promoting and encouraging a fairly distribution of its socially marketed DUME condoms that will prevent any new infectious and re- infection for unknown HIV status intercourses.

Over and above HIV prevention effort, T-MARC works with other partner organisations, donor community and the Government of Tanzania to improve access and use of quality client centered HIV testing, care and treatment services in various community across the country.

About T-MARC Tanzania "T-MARC Tanzania is a fully independent and local non-governmental organization (NGO) specializing in social marketing and social and behavior change communication.  

We employ bold and dynamic approaches to expanding access to health products as well as informing and changing health behaviors.   Our socially marketed products and behavior change communication initiatives address pertinent health issues in reproductive health, family planning, child survival, water and sanitation, nutrition and communicable/non-communicable infections like malaria, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and cervical cancer”
