Adolescents (10-19 years) account for a fourth of the total population of Tanzania but have been largely ignored as a unique segment. While the importance of this age group has been acknowledged, the health and wellbeing of this group has received very little special attention. This large cohort presents significant potential for the country’s social and economic development; evidence shows that investments in adolescent health, particularly reproductive health, can triple dividends.

Through consultations with various stakeholders including adolescents, the former Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC) with the support of partners developed ‘National Accelerated Action and Investment Agenda for Adolescent Health and Well Being’ (NAIA-AHW) 2021/22– 2024/25 with the objective of focusing on gaps in adolescent health and wellbeing that need to be addressed in the immediate term. NAIA sets out catalytical actions across six pillars which are critical to adolescent health and wellbeing:
  • Preventing HIV
  • Preventing teenage pregnancies
  • Preventing physical, sexual and emotional violence
  • Improving nutrition
  • Keeping boys and girls in school
  • Developing skills for meaningful economic opportunities

NAIA was launched on 17th April 2021 by Prime Minister Hon. Kassim Majaliwa Majaliwa with commitments from MOHCDGEC, MOEST, PORALG and PMO. There are multiple stakeholders implementing interventions for adolescents, so it is important to coordinate and bring them under the overarching NAIA objectives. MOCDGWSG hosts the NAIA secretariat to facilitate the coordination with different line ministries and other stakeholders of the NAIA implementation.

How can you make a difference?

UNICEF supported the development of the NAIA over the last three years, working in close collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the UN family and NGO partners. The NAIA is a detailed document with detailed activity costing and results framework by pillar and coordination and implementation structures. But NAIA is cross-cutting, and stakeholders come from many different sectors hence coordination will be key.

MOCDGWSG Child Development unit has been given the overall responsibility to coordinate the implementation of NAIA through a NAIA secretariat and has requested dedicated technical assistance for support to drive the process forward. The consultant will be based in MOCDGWSG office to support the day-to-day activities related to coordination of NAIA implementation with various stakeholders.
