Posted on Mar 25, 2020

HPSS and PharmAccess International (PAI) in collaboration with PORALG conducted stakeholders meeting in Dodoma to plan and sensitize stakeholders to join CHF Iliyoboreshwa campaign. Participants included HPSS and PAI staffs, PORALG, MVIWATA (literally, the Network of Smallholder Farmer in Tanzania), Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA) Dodoma Chapter, Inter-Faith Committee of Tanzania, REMS Africa, Christian Social Services Commission (CSSC). The meeting was successful  as participants understood the concept of CHF Iliyoboreshwa as Social Health Insurance; and the need to sensitize the community, most importantly the roles of their organisations in the campaign by capitalizing on their competitive advantages such as MVIWATA which has a network of 50,000 small scale farmers group membership in Tanzania, TCCIA with chapters in all district councils in Tanzania, and Inter-Faith Committee with a span of inter-faith organisations and CSSC with network of Christian organisations. Already CSSC and Inter-Faith Committee have started promoting CHF Iliyoboreshwa but were not included in the business and therefore their potential and resources were not tapped.  The meeting also received and discussed plan of training Regional CHF Coordinators and Communication Officers on CHF mobilization, plan on use of different media such as broadcast media, social media, events sponsoring like football matches, meetings and website.
