Our Mission

Through sustainable and effective collaboration, to measurably improve the health of vulnerable people in Tanzania by promoting healthy behaviours and delivering quality affordable products and services.


Our Core Values

The following core values reflect what is truly important to us as an organization, and underpin our culture. By maintaining these core values, we can preserve what has always been special about working for PSI Tanzania.
We strive to be:

  • Results Oriented: We produce measurable results through optimal use of resources in a timely fashion.
  • Innovation: We use creativity to help us deliver and achieve results.
  • Quality: What we do, we do well.
  • Integrity: We are honest and transparent in all our actions and are accountable for what we do.
  • Collaboration: We encourage team work and embrace partnerships.
  • People: We value individual skill and initiative. We promote decision making at all levels.

Goals

PSI Tanzania currently works in four of the Government of Tanzania’s priority intervention areas of HIV malaria, reproductive health and diarrheal disease. We are committed to supporting the government’s stated goals:

  • To reduce the rate and number of new HIV infections by 25% by 2012
  • To reduce maternal mortality by two thirds and to increase the contraceptive prevalence rate to 60% by 2015.
  • By 2013, 80% of pregnant women and children under five years of age are sleeping under ITNs in all districts, and 90% of households own at least one ITN
  • To increase access to clean and safe water, and reduce child mortality from neglected diseases such as diarrhea

PSI Tanzania’s support to these goals in turn will contribute to Tanzania achieving at least three millennium development goals (Goal 4: to reduce child mortality, Goal 5: to reduce maternal mortality, and Goal 6 to combat malaria and HIV).
