Description 

This project supports the implementation of Tanzania's National Multi-Sectoral Strategic Framework for HIV/AIDS. The Framework encompasses a wide variety of activities in prevention, care, treatment, and impact mitigation of HIV/AIDS. Canada's support through this project enables the Government of Tanzania to expand the level and scope of its expenditures on HIV/AIDS throughout all ministries, departments and agencies and all levels of government, with the majority of funding being provided for activities at the district level. CIDA is working in close collaboration with other donors and the Government of Tanzania to strengthen the effectiveness of its aid through: focusing on effective, transparent, and accountable country systems; increasing coordination and harmonization among donors; and reinforcing mutual accountability. This project fosters greater policy dialogue between CIDA, the Government of Tanzania, and partners, which helps to reinforce efforts for effective, focused aid and long-term development results. Continuous monitoring and evaluation of this project is undertaken in coordination with other donors.

Expected results 

The results expected from this project include not only nation-wide progress in addressing HIV/AIDS, but also improvements in the Government of Tanzania's capacity to manage and administer these services, particularly in the areas of transparency, financial management, and accountability. These build on results achieved from CIDA's previous support to Canada's HIV/AIDS Program in Tanzania, which include 55% of mothers receiving antiretroviral (ARV) combination treatment to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV in 2008 compared to 34% in 2007. Progress and results achieved Results achieved as of March 2014 include: (1) the National Multisectoral Framework III (2013-2017) was launched and its related Health Sector HIV and AIDS Strategic Plan was developed and disseminated; (2) a non-governmental organizations network was established to address the issues of gender inequalities, and sensitization programs on gender inequalities and gender-based violence were implemented and disseminated; (3) over 6,000 community and civil society organisations are implementing HIV and AIDS related interventions to communities in Tanzania, and the majority of these organizations are capturing HIV/AIDS electronic data, specifically non-medical services that are not implemented by the health sector (e.g. condom distribution, information dissemination, and education and communication programmes) through a national HIV/AIDS monitoring mechanism; and (4) 13,183 teachers were trained in life-skills education for HIV/AIDS, peer education, and counselling. These are contributing to improve the ability of the Government of Tanzania to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Tanzania.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of March 2012 include: (1) developing and disseminating a national HIV/AIDS prevention strategy, which has been adapted to the regional context in most areas; (2) in consultation with all partners, developing annual budget guidelines for Local Government Authorities to assist them in the preparation of their budgets; (3) 1,341 HIV/AIDS organizations, including civil society organisations, are capturing HIV/AIDS electronic data, specifically non-medical HIV services that are not implemented by the health sector (e.g. condom distribution, information, education and communication programmes) through the Tanzania Output Monitoring Mechanism for HIV and AIDS ; and (4) training 4,901 teachers in life-skills education for HIV/AIDS, peer education, and counselling. These activities are helping to build the capacity of the government to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Tanzania.
