This study is about promotion of grassroots participation on HIV/AIDS policy
formulation in rural Tanzania a case of Serengeti district. Grassroots participation
has been done in Tanzania but in HIV/AIDS policy formulation particularly it has
never been done. The main problem behind the study is lack of participation for
ordinary people in the HIV/AIDS policy, especially in rural areas where only few
people have knowledge on the National HIV/AIDS elimination strategies. The
aim is to assess the level of grassroots participation in HIV/AIDS policy
formulation. Questions had to be answered as follows; people’s perception on
HIV/AIDS policy; people’s ways of participation in traditional life; people’s
participation on HIV/AIDS policy; and on how should people participate in
The study implied mixed approach with cross sectional design whereby situation
and conclusions concerning the study was derived from the respondents
themselves. There were few common challenges mentioned by respondents if the
whole community is to be involved in policy formulation process mainly costs
and time factors, but they suggest that if they can participate in different social
and economic activities successfully, what will hinder participation in policy
formulation. Finally, the study suggests that grassroots participation should be a
culture and that having policy as an instrument is one best thing but, ordinary
people’s participation is more important to make it become successful.
