Until recently, TB and HIV have been treated separately under Angola’s National TB Control Program (NCTB) and the National Institute for the Fight Against AIDS (INLS).In support of TB/HIV service integration, the Health for All (HFA) project provided coordination and advocacy at the national level to align NCTB and INLS goals, infrastructural support to facilities to ensure that they have th

The Health For All (HFA) Project worked in partnership with the Government of Angola to integrate provider-initiated HIV testing services into family planning services in health facilities. To support the integration of FP and HIV services, HFA developed standard operating procedures (SOPs) based on each clinical intervention, job aids, and checklists and provided training to health prov

HFA works in support of the Government of Angola’s strategic plan to accelerate early HIV diagnosis and linkage to care through implementation of the Busca Activa Consentida Através do Caso Indice (BACCI) or index case testing and tracing (ICTT).

The Technical Support Services Project (TSSP) worked with the Tanzania Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children (MOHCDGEC) to develop a comprehensive task-sharing (TS) plan for health workers.

This study was designed to identify and map places where HIV transmission is most likely to occur in Angola, estimate the coverage of prevention services at these sites and characterize key populations in Angola, including estimating population size, prevalence and factors of risk to HIV.

The Technical Support Services Project (TSSP), implemented by Management Sciences for Health, works with the Tanzania Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children and the Presidents Office Regional Administration and Local Government to improve the country’s health information system.

To support Tanzania in obtaining, analyzing and using reliable data for informed health system decision making, the Tanzania Technical Support Services Project (TSSP), implemented by Management Sciences for Health, is supporting the development and integration of HIV/AIDS indicators into a new electronic health information dashboard for DHIS2, the national health information platform.

Using an effective intervention and district-led approach to strengthen medicine management in government and private not-for-profit health facilities, Supervision, Performance Assessment, and Recognition Strategy (SPARS), the Uganda Health Supply Chain (UHSC) project strengthened the capacity of district health workers to effectively manage and utilize health commodities and promoted local owners

Access to appropriate, high-quality medicines where and when they are needed is the overall goal of a well functioning supply chain and responsive health system.

To ensure an uninterrupted supply of essential medicines and effectively monitor store management in health facilities, the Uganda Ministry of Health (MoH) chose RxSolution, an integrated pharmaceutical management software.

A good health system ensures equitable and consistent access to quality essential medicines and health supplies. Health equity is prioritized in Uganda’s National Medicines Policy but unequal resource allocation has resulted in some health facilities having insufficient resources to meet local health needs.

Public pharmaceutical-sector managers in Uganda previously relied on information gathered from multiple sources to plan for and manage health supplies at the national, district, and facility levels. Not easily accessible, these sources required extensive effort to compile factual, real-time evidence for decision making.

In February 2019, the Bangladesh National Tuberculosis Program and its implementing partners approved the Action Plan for Strategic Roadmap for Zero TB Cities Bangladesh (ZTBCB), which identifies key actions to be taken between 2019 and 2020 for the Government of Bangladesh to achieve its target of halving the urban TB incidence rate by 2025.
