Tanzania's Ministry of Health and Social Welfare chose the OneHealth Tool, a model for medium- to long-term strategic planning in the health sector, to inform development and prioritization of the Fourth Health Sector Strategic Plan 2015/16–2019/20 (HSSP IV). Specifically, the OneHealth Tool was used to estimate the resource requirements and resources available for the health sector over the next five years, the impact on maternal and child health and HIV if HSSP IV service delivery targets are met, and the human resources constraints in scaling up health services. The results of Tanzania's OneHealth application are summarized in this report and provide an evidence base for strategic planning and resource allocation.
