Tanzania

A snapshot of PrEP scale-up, registration and resources for Tanzania.

  • 500-700
    Estimated Number of Current PrEP Users

    Aggregates numbers reported from demonstration projects, PEPFAR dashboard and program/country reports where available. This is presented as a range due to difficulty in tracking precise numbers and possible double reporting.

  • 13,000-13,500
    Aggregate Target Number of PrEP Users from All Projects (Planned & Ongoing)

    Sum of the targets available at the quarterly data review. National targets put forward by governments may be aspirational and/or indicative of estimated need; or they may be low or non-existent if PrEP is solely available via demonstration projects. For this reason, a calculation of current PrEP users as a percentage of aggregate target will not accurately reflect progress. Additionally, some programs set targets on an annual basis while targets from other programs may extend over multiple years.

  • 12,092
    PEPFAR PrEP Target in COP 2018

    Targets are set by PEPFAR country teams on an annual basis. Targets do not indicate funding is available for PrEP.

Drug Registration Status

  • Gilead's Truvada (TDF/FTC) registration
    Approved
  • Generic versions of TDF/FTC for prevention
    Under review

Types of Delivery Projects

  • Demonstration projects, which road-test the use of new options in real-world settings—not in a trial site. They have a formal evaluation component that is designed to address specific elements of introduction such as infrastructure needs and ways individuals can integrate it into daily activities.
  • Large-scale implementation initiative — funded/implementer involvement and investment in some or all steps related to comprehensive introduction that may or may not use government clinics as the primary service delivery point – e.g., Kenya’s Jilinde program.
  • National level — PrEP availability in government clinics.
