Experience of Tanzania in Addressing HIV/AIDS: Trend Analysis of Key Indicators from 2002–2012 National HMIS Data
July 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Rutgers University welcomes Stephen Kibusi, RNM, MA, PhD, Dean of the School of Nursing and School of Public Health at University of Dodoma, Tanzania, for a seminar series hosted jointly by the Rutgers School of Nursing, Rutgers School of Public Health, and Rutgers Global Health Institute.
HIV/AIDS remains one of the leading public health challenges facing Tanzania. Over the years, the government has developed national strategies to address this challenge, including educating about sexual behavior change; promoting wider coverage of HIV testing and condoms; as well as introducing newer, more effective antiretroviral drug (ARV) regimens. Despite the gains made, more than 30 years since the introduction of the national policy to combat HIV/AIDS in the country, there is still a need for in-depth analysis of data on key indicators to inform policy and strategies.
Kibusi will present a trend analysis of key HIV/AIDS indicators using data from Tanzania, nationally representative surveys conducted in 2001–2002, 2006–2007, and 2011–2012.
Rutgers Global Health Institute, 112 Paterson Street – Room 120, New Brunswick, NJ (Building Location: Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research)
