Over the past decade, the performance of Tanzania’shealth system has been mixed. The country will achieve many of its 2015 targets for malaria, HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis, and child health, but progress in reproductive health is lagging. Currently, nearly half of the country’s health budget is covered by donor funding—the largest share in the world. This USAID and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project brief provides an overview of Tanzania's existing health system, including: human resources for health, health financing, commodities and supplies, and monitoring and evaluation and health management information systems.
