We are all by now undoubtedly aware of the global pandemic outbreak known as Coronavirus (COVID-19) that is highly contagious which has resulted in one case being confirmed in Tanzania on Monday the 16th of March 2020. In response, the government of Tanzania, through the Prime Minister Hon. Majaliwa Kassim Majaliwa, has called for the prohibition of public gatherings including seminars, workshops and conferences for 30 days to help curb the spread of the epidemic. The government will be constantly appraising the situation as it follows developments and will provide further instructions accordingly.

To heed this call and to avoid situations which could increase the risk of transmission, Policy Forum regrets to inform that is has been compelled to postpone the Annual General Meeting (AGM 2020) which was to be held on the 26th and 27th of March 2020 until further notice.

In case of any queries regarding this notice, please feel free to contact the Secretariat by email ( or phone (Landline: +255 22 278 0200 | Mobile: +255 782 317434).

Furthermore, we take this opportunity to urge the membership to stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak in Tanzania and to follow instructions on how to prevent its spread through public announcements from the Ministry of Community Development, Gender and Children (MCDGC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
