New Issue of Population Connection Magazine

Tanzania is East Africa’s largest and most populous country, and is one of eight countries projected to make up over half of the world’s population growth through 2050. Fertility is high, at nearly five births per woman, and the population is growing so quickly that it is set to double in only 23 years. This threatens Tanzania’s development prospects, keeps individuals and families trapped in poverty, and harms the health of women and children. Over one-fifth of women have an unmet need for family planning. The Tanzanian government is currently committed to addressing this issue through increased family planning funding, much of which will come from donor countries such as the United States.
