Improving Service Delivery through Social Workers in Tanzania

October 16, 2017

Tanzania’s Association of Social Workers held their Annual General Meeting early in October to push to establish a national council to regulate and address various issues related to the social work profession.

Dr. Tuhuma Tulli, JSI Chief of Party, was quoted in the national Daily News newspaper commenting that JSI is committed to working with social workers to improve service delivery, especially dealing with the welfare of a child.

JSI has trained social workers on the national integrated case management system, initially rolled out to 14,000 health providers across the country.

Social work is a profession concerned with helping individuals, families, groups, and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. It aims to help people develop their skills and their ability to use their own resources and those of the community to resolve problems.
