Initial implementation supported by implementation research
The introduction of MMS in Tanzania follows a comprehensive systems approach and is supported by an extensive implementation research approach, which started in October 2020. A supply readiness assessment & formative research was carried out by Sight and Life in 2019 and 2021 respectively for UNICEF.
The Government of Tanzania, UNICEF, and other nutrition partners will undertake a demonstration pilot in 1 district. The introduction of MMS will be part of a continuum of services through community, school and health contacts to adolescents and pregnant women to strengthen the promotion of dietary diversity, food fortification, and micronutrient supplementation. Imported UNIMMAP-MMS is being distributed since October 2021.
