As both a global research institute and a leading international development organization, RTI combines our project implementation and technical expertise with those of our partners to co-create smart, shared solutions for a more prosperous, equitable, and resilient world. 

For over 25 years, we have collaborated with clients and partners in Tanzania to advance sustainable, multi-sectoral solutions for the most difficult development challenges. In all that we do, we strive for transformative change built on equity and inclusion. 

Our experience and recent project implementation include:

Education in Tanzania

  • The  Jifunze Uelewe Activity is working to advance safe and inclusive education in Tanzania, scale up pre-primary education, and build Tanzania’s capacity to sustain these gains over the long term.

Energy in Africa

Environment in Tanzania

Health in Tanzania

  • Through the Act to End Neglected Tropical Diseases| East programs, we empower governments of endemic countries to lead national NTD control programs and scale up the delivery of preventive chemotherapy for the seven most common NTDs.
  • Under the Okoa Maisha Dhibiti Malaria (OMDM)—Save Lives, End Malaria project, we worked to promote programmatic integration, local ownership, capacity strengthening, and maximize data for decision-making to reduce the overall burden of malaria and move Tanzania closer to elimination.
  • The Global Adult Tobacco Survey is standardizing surveillance and monitoring processes to measure worldwide tobacco use.
