Mass fainting in Tanzania is a common phenomenon of mass hysteria that is experienced by junior school girls in Tanzania.[1] In September 2008, 20 girls at a school in Tabora started fainting while taking their final year exams. The mass fainting has been linked to neurosis related to the local practice of witchcraft.[2]
