National Strategy For Gender Development

The socio-economic development of Tanzania is dependent on the full utilization of its human resource, both women and men. The society realizes that the continued marginalization and under-utilization of women who constitute 5.11 percent (population census 2002) of the population is a major obstacle to rapid socio-economic development of the country.

The Government has taken measures to address gender concerns in the Constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania, macro and micro policies, strategies and programmes.
