The Health Policy Project has ended, but work continues under a new USAID five-year project, Health Policy Plus (HP+).
What Will it Take for Tanzania to Achieve ART Targets and Ensure Long-Term Sustainability of the HIV Response?
In Tanzania, the HIV response is heavily reliant on donor funding, but even with donor support, a significant resource gap still exists. Long-term sustainability requires increased domestic government support and innovative financing mechanisms that will help reduce reliance on donors and close the resource gaps.
In support of USAID-led PEPFAR Sustainable Financing Initiative, the Health Policy Project (HPP) has assisted countries in developing health financing policies and mechanisms that emphasize domestic resource mobilization and prioritize sustainability to adequately meet future healthcare needs. As part of its ongoing work to provide citizens, advocates, and policymakers with relevant and timely evidence for health financing, HPP is pleased to release a suite of products highlighting its analysis of health financing issues in Tanzania.
After 2017, Tanzania may need to find another source of funding for 45 percent of its pediatric antiretroviral therapy (ART) commodities, costs currently supported by the Accelerating Children’s HIV/AIDS Treatment Initiative.

HPP’s successor, the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Plus (HP+) project, is continuing the work of the Sustainable Financing Initiative. HP+ builds on HPP’s successes while keeping pace with shifts in resource needs and donor and domestic financing trends.
