TPHO: Tanzania Public Health Organization 

The collaboration between IOGT-NTO Movement and the Tanzania Public Health Organization (TPHO) in the project ”Community Action against Alcohol Harm” marks a significant initiative aimed at reducing alcohol-related harm and violence against women and children across four key regions: Kilimanjaro, Manyara, Morogoro, and Dodoma in Tanzania. Over a span of five years, our collective goal is to achieve a 10% reduction in alcohol-related harm by 2027, targeting children, women, and men in these communities.

Central to our approach is the advocacy for national alcohol policies that are not only enacted but rigorously enforced. Through community engagement and empowerment, we aim to control harmful alcohol use and foster healthier lifestyles within the targeted regions.

Our strategy involves raising awareness about the detrimental effects of alcohol abuse, providing comprehensive education on responsible drinking practices, and implementing prevention programs tailored to the specific needs of each community. By actively involving community members, including local leaders, educators, health professionals, and grassroots organizations, we seek to cultivate a supportive environment that prioritizes the well-being of its residents.

Through this collaborative effort, we envision a future where communities in Kilimanjaro, Manyara, Morogoro, and Dodoma regions in Tanzania, are empowered to take proactive measures against alcohol-related harm.
