Our Work in Tanzania

In the mid-1980s and the early 1990s, East Africa became an important stop along international drug trafficking routes, thereby introducing heroin in the region. In 2009, 40-45 tons of opiates were trafficked into Africa, most entering through the eastern countries by air and sea, and 34 of those tons were consumed in the region, highlighting it only as a transiting hub, but also a place for consumption. Currently, an estimated 533,000 opiate users live in eastern Africa.
