A series of localized emergencies happen in Tanzania every year requiring a timely and appropriate response. Small to medium scale emergencies, both natural and man-made hazards including drought, floods, refugee influxes, earthquakes and epidemics often affect livelihoods, destroy infrastructure and cause food insecurity and health problems. Moreover, climate change, deforestation and manipulation of natural drainage channels have increased the risk of floods and displacement of people, changing weather patterns and consequent uncertainties, particularly to farmers. The country has experienced periodic cholera outbreaks, including a widespread outbreak since August 2015 until 2019. In May 2019, Tanzania was exposed to a threat of Cyclone Kenneth which posed a potential threat to some regions in the southern regions mainly Mtwara, Lindi and Ruvuma.
Tanzania is one of the five countries (Angola, Central Africa Republic (CAR), Republic of Congo, and Zambia) classified as priority 2 by WHO as being exposed to potential risk of cross border contamination of EVD from DRC. Countries prioritized as level 1 are; Burundi, Rwanda, South Sudan and Uganda. Currently there is no EVD reported in Tanzania, however, there is a high likelihood of EVD importation into the country from DRC or any other neighboring countries through both formal and porous borders due to social-cultural and economic cross border movements among these countries.
