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.

WHATS ARE IMPORTANT TO TAREO
- Health of individuals, but also health of the community are given emphasis. The emphasis is on the concept of health and not on medicine. The health of people is dependent upon many factors, for example, on social and economic relations. Stable political systems are important conditions, just like living in good health, with clean water, good income, improvement of the rights of women, education, transportation facilities and respect of human rights; all these are important factors for the health of individuals and the population we consider.
- Primary Health Care: We are concerned with qualified health services focusing in rural areas. As such we orientate ourselves to the principles and strategies of Primary Health Care and the guidelines of Community Based Health Care/ Development concept. TAREO role is to bring together those stakeholders ,mobilizes resources and put itself in the position of implementing those principles of health, to analyses their situation and be ready to use the available local means to bring about changes and development.
