Devex: Tanzania’s new digital health road map has the government ‘in the driver’s seat’
“Tanzania’s new digital health road map offers a pioneering example of ‘putting national government in the driver’s seat’ and of systems based approaches to e-health, experts say. … The plan is the culmination of an 18-month project implemented by international NGO PATH with $2 million in funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. … The road map calls for an overall investment of approximately $74 million and aims to deliver improvements across five main areas — enhancing health service delivery, strengthening health systems performance, optimizing resource allocation, improving data supply and demand, and connecting and harmonizing data systems…” (Edwards, 12/16).
