D4I Tanzania Intensive Site Monitoring: Year End Report

D4I Tanzania Intensive Site Monitoring: Year End Report
Abstract: USAID Tanzania required ongoing intensive monitoring and administrative support services to utilize high-quality data to improve programs in real-time and ensure that United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)-funded programs and other technical area programs, including reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCAH) and tuberculosis (TB), are meeting their performance targets and providing high-quality services. D4I supported USAID’s needs by conducting intensive site-level monitoring using customized tools developed by USAID. The goal of these intensive site-level monitoring visits was to determine if sites were meeting service quality standards and best practices and to make recommendations for corrective action at the site level based on the assessments. Areas assessed include human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), TB, RMNCAH, and FP.

As part of the site-level intensive monitoring visits, the D4I team conducted root cause analysis for each focus area to determine the most important factors, or “why” factors, affecting providers, service delivery, the health system, and processes. This analysis is a collaborative effort with facility staff in identifying the core issues regarding performance. D4I also provides technical assistance to the service providers in the areas where gaps are identified and supports sites in identifying capacity-building needs to improve quality service provision.

The geographic focus for these site visits were in the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania, including the regions of Iringa, Mbeya, Morogoro, Tanga, Katavi, Dodoma, Singida, Dar es Salaam, Manyara, Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Njombe, Ruvuma, Lindi, Mtwara; and the Lake Western Zone, including the regions of Tabora, Geita, Simiyu, Mwanza, Mara, and Shinyanga.
