Tanzania prioritizes delivery of oral health services at primary care level


Dar es Salaam ‒ One evening after work, 31-year-old Calvin Andrea went to the nearby Tumbi clinic in Kibaha Region, Tanzania, as he could not endure the severe tooth ache he was suffering. “To be honest, I was really sad about the discomfort I felt and the bad breath I was experiencing,” he says.  Andrea was surprised to consult with an oral health professional as he has in the past struggled to access these services. “After the swift response from the doctors, I am much better and happy and I have been relieved of the extreme pain,” he says.
