The Tanzanian Minister for Health and Social Welfare, Dr. Haji Mponda has vowed to reduce infant and maternal mortality in order to achieve Millennium Development Goals by 2015. The minister promised to reduce infant and maternal deaths by improving the health sector. It can be noted that Tanzania is still lagging behind other East African nations in terms of achieving the MDGs. According to UNICEF, the under-one infant mortality rate declined to 67 per 1000 live births in 2008 from 97 per 1000 live births in 1990. But the rate is still high compared to other nations.
