This project, in partnership with Tanzania’s Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children, and local government authorities, is supporting the achievement of results of the Government of Tanzania’s National Road Map Strategic Plan to Accelerate the Reduction of Preventable Maternal, Newborn and Child Deaths in Tanzania (2016 – 2020); a sub-strategy of Tanzania’s Fourth Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSPIV). This initiative emphasizes the delivery of essential health services at the district level, strengthening the health system referral pyramid, from community to national level; improving central support systems (including infrastructure, health management information systems, essential medicines and commodities, and information communications technology); addressing human resources for health shortage and distribution; improving the level, appropriateness and sustainability of health care financing; and promoting public private partnership. The implementation of the National Road Map Strategic Plan to Accelerate the Reduction of Preventable Maternal, Newborn and Child Deaths in Tanzania is focused on improving the management and delivery of primary health care services to improve maternal, newborn and child health. Canada is one of several donors supporting the Government of Tanzania’s pooled fund for the health sector to improve governance and to strengthen the health system performance. Since 2006, Canada has been working in close collaboration with other donors and the Government of Tanzania to focus on effective, transparent, and accountable country systems; increase donor coordination and harmonization; and strengthen mutual accountability. This support also fosters greater policy dialogue among donors, government and partners, thus helping to strengthen efforts for effective, focused aid, as well as long-term development results.
