A Few Words About Us

Who we are

Community Health Auspices and Shield Organization (CoHASO) is a youth-led, notfor-profit organization serving the underserved communities in Tanzania. It aims at ensuring health protection and promotion by predominantly focusing on Sustainable Development Goals 3, 6 and 2. (the order is due to our priority)

Considering the role of health education as a key component of health promotion and its significant need in the community, we examined and realized that as proactive youths we have a responsibility to provide the community with accurate and adequate information on health issues.
