Effective access to functioning and well-equipped social services is a prerequisite to improving the quality of life and for promoting the well being of all Tanzanians. The Afrobarometer has now tracked Tanzanians’ perceptions of the quality of social service delivery – specifically with respect to education, water supply and health – for three rounds of nationally representative survey s, in 2001, 2003 and 2005. People’s access to these services, their evaluation of the government’s performance in providing them, and specific problems they have encountered, are the subject of this briefing paper.
