Abstract:     
The over extended on-and-off strike in Tanzania early this year was a result of unfruitful negotiations between the government and the doctors. Civil society organizations referred to as ‘activists’, involved with advocacy for health related and human rights issues intervened largely by using several advocacy strategies. Despite many efforts, the achievements were below expectations. This paper shares the advocacy strategy utilized by civil society organizations ‘activists’ during doctors’ strike in the country, achievements and setbacks, then provides recommendations that may be applied should a need arise in the future.
