Description and results


The project supports a strategy developed and implemented by Sikika, a Tanzanian non-governmental organization, to increase transparency and accountability in the health and HIV/AIDS sectors by fostering effective engagement and interaction between health and HIV/AIDS policy-makers, service providers and service users. The strategy focuses on improving the awareness of citizens on key health policy issues, as well as increasing integration between community service organizations to coordinate and increase advocacy in areas of common priority.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) Tanzanian citizens have an increased capacity to demand transparency and accountability from their government; (2) health systems are strengthened due to improved interaction within the civil society organization (CSO) sector to advocate to government; and (3) the Government of Tanzania is held to a higher standard in response to the demand from citizens and CSOs.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2014 include: (1) citizens were sensitized on key health and HIV/AIDS policies and reforms, including on the rights, roles and responsibilities of health services users and providers through campaigns including more than 120,000 publications distributed (increase from 30,189 in 2011 to more than 50,000 by 2013), over 80 radio programs aired and over 200 newspaper articles published (increase from 32 articles in 2011 to 104 in 2013); and (2) all Sikika staff members were provided with training in outcome mapping and other various subjects (social accountability monitoring, public finance management, budgeting, health economics and human resources for health) to improve the organization’s ability to participate in policy dialogue. These have contributed to improving accountability in the health and HIV/AIDS sectors in Tanzania.
