The office is located at Summit Center, Ground floor along Sokoine road. The company which is currently the second largest private insurer in the country has been operating for almost two decades and over.

Muyengi said: “It is only 15 per cent of Tanzanians who use insurance services, our strategy is that by the year 2030 we ensure 50 per cent of the population has access to insurance, and at the same time increase insurance literacy of the population from the current 30 per cent level to 80 per cent over the same term."

"The government on its part shall continue to set up a friendly environment to enable insurance companies to conduct business smoothly, we expect insurers to reciprocate this promise by clearing claims lodged by customers promptly. I also call upon insurers to introduce in the market products that augur with typical needs of Tanzanians, the likes of small-scale miners, livestock keepers and farmers," Mr. Muyengi added.

He also commended and requested Strategis Insurance to keep up the good work in paying out claims in a timely manner. Mr. Muyengi said: We at TIRA are happy with the way Strategis are doing business, they are solvent and pays claims on time

The establishment of this Sales Point is part of the Strategic decision that has been made by the company to enhance the effectiveness and impact of its operation in Arusha and the entire Northern zone

In the just ended year, Strategis consolidated its growth and proudly recorded a topline increase of about 20% to become the 2nd largest private insurer in the Tanzanian insurance industry by market share. While the Company continues to be the leader in private medical insurance it has also grown the non-medical insurance book by 40% in 2020. This significant growth is attributed not only to reforms undertaken by the company to strengthen its position, but also to the support from various key stakeholders

Speaking at the event, Strategis Insurance Chief Executive Officer (Medical Division) who is also acting Group CEO, Dr. Flora Minja said that the company was focusing on growing its business portfolio, opening new lines of sevice and deploying technology and innovation in the service delivery .

"We thus strive to stay abreast with new technological advances that not only create improved operational efficiency and accuracy in terms of customer information management but also incorporate technological developments happening in the industry and allow interaction with various stakeholders in real time."

The company is committed to universal health insurance coverage agenda, and that it supports the government and industry in the national goal of ensuring at least 50 per cent of the adult population use insurance services by 2030.

Within this context, the company intends to expand its geographical presence , and the Arusha Sales point is one among initiatives anticipated to increase the company’s footprint allowing it to reach demographics,” Dr. Flora added.

Earlier speaking at the event, Strategis CEO (Non-Medical Division), Jabir Kigoda, said the company was poised to deliver top-class services in Arusha region, a move that would be beefed up by introduction of various products targeting the tourism industry and other sectors of the economy, including manufacturing and other productive sectors.

The launch of the Arusha Sales point is a manifestation of how we are determined to serve the insurance market and thereby support the government in increasing insurance penetration and awareness in the country. Today’s launch is not just another launch of the office in Arusha. To us the launch of this office shows a commitment that we have in servicing better our clients who matters most to us."

"We believe the presence of this office in this region will bring a healthy competition to the market and assist in reaching untapped socio-economic sectors such as Tourism, Agriculture, Trade and manufacturing. We are fully confident that our presence in Arusha will be of great benefit to the entire region and will grow to become one of the best in the region. We will always strive to build and maintain reliable and secure partnerships through first class underwriting, risk advisory service and fast settlement of claims.’’ said Mr. Kigoda

Facebook launches Blood Donations feature in Tanzania

 

Dar es Salaam, 24th May 2021 | Today, Facebook has launched its Blood Donations feature in Tanzania in partnership with the Tanzania National Blood Service (NBTS). The feature will help the NBTS connect its seven blood donation centres in Tanzania to blood donors across the country.

Facebook’s blood donation feature aims to encourage people to donate blood and will enable anyone in Tanzania between 18-65 years old to sign up to receive notifications about blood donation opportunities nearby. The feature also allows people to invite their friends and family to sign up to receive updates about giving blood.

Since its founding in 2004, the Tanzania NBTS has evolved from a hospital-based system relying on more than 80% of family replacement donors, to a coordinated centralized system based on voluntary non-remunerated blood donors. According to NBTS, youth and students in Tanzania are the most important group of blood donors because they account for 80% of the blood supply. The launch of this blood donation feature will enable Facebook users to more easily connect with blood donation centers across Tanzania.

Commenting on the launch, Facebook's Head of Public Policy for East & Horn of Africa Mercy Ndegwa said, “We are excited to launch our blood donation feature to help the Tanzania National Blood Transfusion Service address the blood needs in Tanzania. Facebook is committed to building safe and supportive communities which is why we’ve launched this feature in collaboration with Tanzania NBTS to serve the needs of the Tanzania blood donation ecosystem.

The Blood Donations feature on Facebook consists of two key components:
  • Option to sign up to receive notifications — Facebook users can sign up to receive notifications about nearby opportunities to give blood.
  • Blood banks inspire potential donors - Trusted blood donation centers working with Tanzania National Blood Transfusion Services who need to find donors can create page posts that inform donors what they need and include a call to action button that allows donors to contact them directly from the post.
Since launching the Blood Donations feature in October 2017, over 85 million people have signed up to receive notifications from nearby blood banks about opportunities to donate in more than 30 countries. Tanzania is the 13th country in Africa to launch the feature.

How It Works

People between the ages of 18 - 65 in Tanzania can sign up to be a blood donor on Facebook by going to Blood Donations in the About section of their profile or access it through this link: facebook.com/donateblood

Ni asilimia 15 tu ya Watanzania ndio wanatumiahuduma za bima, mkakati wetu ni kuhakikisha kuwa ifikapo mwaka 2030 asilimia 50 ya watu watakuwa wanatumia huduma hizo,, na wakati huo huop kiwango cha uelewa wa maswala ya bima kitaongezeka kutoka asilimia 30 ya sasa hadi asilimia 80," alisema Muyengi.

Ili kufaniklisha hili,kampuni yetu inanui kupanua eneo lakelaklutoa huduma, na ofisi hii ya Arusha ni miongoni mwa mikakati ambayo inatarajiwa kuhakikisha kuwa tunafikia kila kikundi nchini,” Alisema Dr. Flora.

Uzinduzi wa ofisi yetu ya Arusha ni kiashirio cha namna gani tumejiandaa vyema kuhudumia soko labima na kunga mkono harakati za serikali za kuongeza uelewa na matumizi ya huduma za bima nchini,’ akisema Kigoda.

Aliongeza Kigoda: “Uzinduzi hu unaofanyika leo ni zaidi ya ufunguzi wa ofisi jijini Arusha. Kwetu sisi uzinduzi huu unaonyesha nia namna gani tupo makini kuhudumia wateja wetu, ambao tunawapa kipaumbele. Tunaamini uwepo wa ofisi hii utaleta ushindani wenye manufaa sokoni na kusaidia kufikisha huduma kwenye sekta zilizoachwa nyuma na huduma za bima kama utalii, kilimo bishara na viwanda."

Tuna uhakika kuwa uwepo wetu hapa Arusha utakuwa na manufaa katika mkoa mzima na kwamba huduma zetu hapa zitakuwa na kuwa bora zaidi. Tutaendelea kujenga na kuimarisha ushirika thabiti kwa kutoa viwango vya juu vya malipo ya bima, huduma za ushauri wa majanga mbalimbali na kufupisha muda wa kulipa wateja

Sekta ya bima nchini imekuwa ikikua kwa asilimia 17.7 kwa mwaka, huku mapato ya bima yakipanda hadi kufikia Tsh 814.5bn kwa kipindi cha mwaka wa 2019-2020, kutoka mapato ya Tsh 691bn mwaka uliotangulia. Vilevile katika kipindi hicho,TIRA imesajili makampuni ya bima 31, madalali 10 na mawakala 780.
