The CIA World Factbook: Tanzania is a good source. As is the US Foreign Department site. Of course you always should consult your own country's Foreign Department web site.


Find current information on the web site of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Tanzania. Always consult your family doctor and your country's Health Department web site.
