Connecting communities to healthcare in Tanzania
Trans Tanz is a charitable organisation that works in the Bagamoyo district of Tanzania. We provide free transport for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in rural areas to access antiretroviral (ARV) drugs. These drugs are available without charge but many poor Tanzanians living with HIV/AIDS are unable to afford the cost of accessing them. Our project helps keep hundreds of PLWHA alive.
We are a small organisation, set up in 2006 by a group of friends who wanted to help community based organisations in Tanzania respond to the problem of HIV/AIDS. We are entirely dependent on donations to support our work.
Watch Ashura tell her story and Dr Waziri the lead doctor at the Miono CTC explain the benefits of the service.
