Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

Tanzania has a high prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, and cardiovascular disease. The prevalence of chronic diseases is anticipated to rise as the population ages, increasing the need for palliative care services. Additionally, the Tanzanian government has improved access to these services after realising the value of palliative care. For instance, in order to regulate the delivery of palliative care services throughout the nation, the Ministry of Health introduced the National Palliative Care Policy in 2018.
