It is aligned with the Tanzanian Government's Vision 2025 and its five-year national development plan (FYDP III, 2021/22-2025/26). The program will contribute to the achievement of FYDP III's aspirations for steady economic and social growth in the country and improved health and livelihoods for the people in the targeted areas.
