dc.description.abstract Obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCD) are a global concern. A new study conducted by the Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF) shows that obesity cases are rising in Tanzania. Among recommendations, the report encourages an increase in excise tax equivalent to 20 per cent of the current price of sugar-sweetened soft drinks and juices, as a policy intervention measure. The article discusses the impact of obesity, and counter measures such as raising excise taxes. en
