Abstract:

The USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) supports health systems strengthening (HSS) by bringing together different actors and disciplines within the health system to improve policy and ultimately achieve more equitable and sustainable access to health services. The importance of HSS for HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria programs is recognized in Tanzania’s national strategic plans.

In May 2014, USAID/Tanzania approached HPP to assist the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare’s Directorate of Policy and Planning in conducting a rapid HSS assessment with two main objectives: to build initial consensus around priority HSS actions that will inform a new national HSS strategy, and to provide information for the ministry to advocate for additional HSS funding. The latter includes presenting HSS priorities, activities, and actions to the Global Fund’s Tanzania National Coordinating Mechanism to be considered for inclusion in the upcoming grant application process.
