Trans Tanz provides a free bus service for people living with HIV/AIDS to access treatment. We work with UKUN to transport people to health centres where they can get ARV prescriptions and CD4 tests.
The majority of people living in Tanzania live outside the 50km radius known as having access to healthcare. 6% of people living in Tanzania have HIV/AIDS. Trans Tanz works in Bagamoyo - an area of Tanzania with one of the highest prevalence rates - to provide transportation for people living with HIV/AIDS to testing, CD4 machines and significantly the anti-retroviral drugs they need to stay alive.
A regular free bus service services 15 villages in rural Tanzania, increasing ARV uptake from 0-100% in many cases. As a result of the project, lives are prolonged and the impact of the disease is mitigated in individuals, families and communities.
Increase life expectancy of people living with HIV/AIDS so they are able to work and raise their children. This limits the wider socio-economic impact of HIV/AIDS on Tanzania's labour productivity and reduces the number of orphans.
Many congratulations on ‘inventing’ this project. It is helping us a lot because before we couldn’t get any medicine but now we can! Thank you very much. - Anon, Patient - note in the patient feedback box
