Tanzania hosts over 300,000 refugees of which 231,000 are Burundian refugees and asylum-seekers residing in three overcrowded refugee camps in north-western Tanzania. Tanzania remains the largest host of Burundian refugees in the region.
Women and children make up 78% of the total refugee population.
Delivery and follow-up of critical protection services to children at risk, SGBV survivors, and other persons with specific needs are severely affected by gaps in other sectors.
