Accelerating Action to Address Violence Against Women and Children in Tanzania

As the field of violence prevention and response continues to grow, the long-term, multi-sectoral coordination model piloted in Tanzania is often cited as a model for impact, capacity-building, ownership and momentum. This case study seeks to understand both the core components of success and the challenges faced in implementing this innovative model. Though Tanzania has substantially scaled up the number and capacity of social welfare officers and social workers over the past 10 years, the lack of sufficient numbers of trained social workers and social welfare officers fundamentally undermines the ability of the protection systems to function appropriately.
