This eHealth Strategy is intended to lay a solid foundation for making the best possible use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) resources in Tanzania’s Health and Social Welfare sector. This Strategy
will modernise and increase the whole sector’s performance. For example, the role of ICT in supporting distance-education, training (both pre-service and in-service) and research, offers tangible benefits given the
remoteness of many parts of Tanzania where rural health service facilities are located. Further, eHealth will help trigger a wealth of new opportunities through sector-wide empowerment, collaboration, research and innovation.
