Abstract:Proceedings of a two-day seminar organized by the Convocation of the University of Dar es Salaam in April 1991 on the crisis of social services delivery in Tanzania. The seminar underscored heightened public concern at the continued deterioration of social services in Tanzania since the onset of the economic crisis; examined the effect of structural adjustment policies on health, education, water, food security, housing and social welfare; and made specific recommendations for the government and other interested development agencies on how to improve the delivery and sustainability of social services. The proceedings include a review of the literature on financing strategies for each of the social sectors in sub-Saharan Africa (Anna Kajumulo Tibaijuka and Anna Cormack), regional position papers for Kagera and Mtwara and a summary of the main features by sector for the remaining regions of Tanzania, a summary of the panel discussions and a summary of the main points raised in official statements by the attending dignitaries, and papers on the political economy and legal foundations of social services delivery in Tanzania (G.K. Munishi, Mgongo Fimbo), issues in the education sector (Abel G. Ishumi), the health sector (Anna Kajumulo Tibaijuka), the water sector (Mark R. Mujwahuzi), food security (Robert B. Mabele, Emmanuel A. Lugusha), housing (J.S. Materu, K. Simba), and social welfare (Benson C. Nindi, Christina M.K. Nsekela).
