Three studies into road traffic injury on rural roads in Tanzania

Project Budget: £155,000 GBP

Dates: 2012 to 2013

Funding Partner: UK Department for International Development, through the African Rural Access Partnership research programme




It is well established that improving rural roads can bring economic and social benefits. However, these benefits can be offset by an increase in road deaths and injuries and the associated negative social and economic consequences.


These studies found high and increasing rates of road traffic injury on rural roads, in particular among motorcycle taxi riders.
