A CLOSER LOOK AT THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IN TANZANIA
Tanzania has a hierarchical health system which is in tandem with the political-administrative hierarchy.At the bottom, there are the dispensaries found in village levels where the village leaders have a direct influence on its running. The health centers are found at ward level and the health center in charge is answerable to the ward leaders. At the district, there is a district hospital and at the regional level a regional referral hospital. The tertiary level is usually the zone hospitals and at a national level, there is the national hospital. There are also some specialized hospitals that do not fit directly into this hierarchy and therefore are directly linked to the ministry of health.

IHPs are a primary source of healthcare in low- and middle- income countries, providing over-the-counter medicines and healthcare services to their customers. IHPs are a trusted and influential source of medical advice in their local communities. In Tanzania alone, numbers of IHPs are serving a population of more than 30m people.
