In 2016 Management Sciences for Health (MSH) was awarded a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide technical assistance to the Tanzanian Ministry of Health Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC) and public health institutions (PHIs). Through this CDC-funded Technical Support Services Project (TSSP), MSH supports the MOHCDGEC and PHIs to continuously improve the health system required to achieve and sustain HIV epidemic control in Tanzania. TSSP provides support in four areas including: Health Management Information System (HMIS) with Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E); Client-level Data Systems (CLDS); Human Resources for Health (HRH); and Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement (QA/QI).
The aim of the HMIS/M&E area is to improve quality of health systems, data, analysis, dissemination and use of data to enhance evidence-based decision making at various government administrative levels.
The Senior HMIS/M&E Advisor will lead the project M&E activities including systems development and implementation, strategy and guidance document development, capacity building, quantitative and qualitative data analyses, program evaluation, and routine program monitoring activities, to provide the needed advisory and capacity building support to the MOHCDGEC and PHIs and to meet the CDC development assistance goals in Tanzania.
S/he will also maximize synergy and integration of HMIS/M&E with the other project’s work streams (Client-Level Data Systems; Human Resources for Health; and Quality Assurance/Quality Improvement).
