Supporting high-quality, accessible, and sustainable health services in Tanzania
Tanzania Health Promotion Support (THPS) is a Tanzanian non-governmental organization (NGO) registered in 2011 that supports the government of Tanzania, through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Tanzania mainland and Ministry of Health in Zanzibar, to deliver comprehensive HIV prevention, care, and treatment services. THPS’s core focus is on strengthening the existing national health system, and specifically the structures responsible for budgeting, planning, implementing, and monitoring health and social services. From October 2013 THPS won a funding opportunity to become a direct recipient of United States Government (USG) funding through the US Presidents Emergency Fund for AIDS relief (PEPFAR). THPS has just started implementing the five years program (2013-18) aimed at providing comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment services in Pwani, Mtwara, Kigoma regions and Zanzibar in October 2013. Additionally THPS is engaged in operational research in maternal and neonatal health through a collaborative effort with Columbia University and Ifakara health Institute (IHI); and on an impact evaluation on the use of Non-clinical Health workers on linkage to and retention in HIV/AIDS with PEPFAR Tanzania.
The vision of Tanzania Health Promotion Support is a healthy Tanzanian society, in which every individual has an equal opportunity to access high-quality health services.
