CARE is implementing health programming in Tanzania in the region of Tabora, a remote and isolated part of the country where maternal, newborn, and child mortality is high. The project aims to improve the quality of reproductive, maternal, and newborn health services available, and to address the existing barriers women and girls face in accessing care.
