Investing in children's health equals investing in a society's future. Tanzania is aware of that and has addressed the issue. And with notable success: the east African country has achieved the fourth Millennium Development Goal – reducing child mortality by two thirds by 2015 – even before the deadline. To get this far, Tanzania significantly improved basic health care. This also includes making immunisation available that can protect children from life-threatening diseases such as pneumonia or diarrhoea.
