Social work in Tanzania

by Simeon Brody

There’s a good piece on the BBC about Tanzania’s efforts to introduce much-needed social care services.

According to the Institute of Social Work (ISW), Tanzania needs at least 8,000 more social workers to meet the increasing demand.

Its response has been to train existing community development officers and representatives of community-based and non-governmental organisations as so-called para-social workers.
