The Global Health Supply Chain – Technical Assistance – Tanzania (GHSC-TA-TZ) project provides Tanzania with specialized technical assistance (TA) to strengthen the country’s supply chain systems in all areas of health, such as malaria, family planning (FP), HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH). In coordination with in-country and development partners, the GHSC-TA-TZ supports the Government of Tanzania’s health programs and stakeholders through technical assistance in four areas/objectives. The project aims to support the development of flexible, robust, and sustainable health supply chains that contribute to improving the availability of medicines and ultimately the health status of the Tanzanian population. The activities implemented by GHSC-TA-TZ are structured into different objectives and interventions, such as supporting strategic planning and implementation, improving the delivery of health commodities at service delivery sites, increasing stakeholder understanding and commitment to the supply chain system, and strengthening the enabling environment to improve supply chain performance.

The project, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and PORALG, has so far conducted IMPACT trainings in 25 regions in mainland Tanzania and 16 regional referral hospitals.
