(p.156) Chapter 12 Tanzania: Gaining Insights into Adolescent Lives and Livelihoods
Challenging Inequities in Health






Oxford University Press

Adolescents represent a large proportion of the population in developing countries, yet within these countries policy rarely addresses their particular needs. This chapter sheds light on previously ignored aspects of adolescent lives which are of major public health significance in Tanzania and elsewhere. It begins by presenting information that can be gleaned from routine statistical sources and surveys. It then presents further insights gained from interviews and discussion groups with vulnerable adolescents, for example, those working in mines and plantations, commercial sex workers, street children, refugees, and other children living in difficult circumstances. The final part of the chapter draws lessons for future research and policy development in Tanzania.

Keywords:   Tanzania, health of adolescents, living conditions, vulnerable groups, future research
