Challenge

LGBT human rights activists face official harassment. Likewise, there are reports of LGBT individuals facing harassment from law enforcement officials who use criminal charges as means of obtaining bribes. Societal discrimination and a lack of understanding of LGBT people also leads to diminished access to health services. Same-sex sexual activity has been criminalized. And few organizations specifically advocate for LGBT persons in Tanzania.

Solution

The results, situated within human rights and domestic law, may then serve as a tool for policy advocacy, LGBT civil society capacity building and for encouraging support from other human rights organizations.

Long-Term Impact

Reduce incidences of Human Rights violation against LGBT individuals in Tanzania

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
