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.
