Countdown to 2030: Assessing Progress and Performance in Tanzania
The study aims to assess the progress and performance of countdown 2030 in Tanzania, monitoring the national plan and investment case for women’s, children’s, and adolescent’s health.
Since 2005, Ifakara Health Institute has been working on Countdown to 2030 in collaboration with MOH, WHO, World Bank, and UNICEF. Together, they have been working on tracking progress towards universal coverage for reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition. This collaboration aims to strengthen the analysis and synthesis of health data to inform national and local reviews of progress and performance in the context of the national health plans.
Countdown to 2030 (CD2030) is a collaboration of academics from global, regional, country institutions, UN agencies, and World Bank and civil society organizations, to track the progress of life-saving interventions for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RMNCAH+N).
CD2030 was started in 2013 and was originally known as Countdown to 2015 in response to the challenge of the health-related Millennium Development Goals by 2015. Read more about CD2030 here.
The methodology for this study will use secondary data analysis from the following existing data:
1. Synthesis of existing data from various sources. For example, TDHS, DHIS2, etc.
2. Synthesis of all existing reports and analyses. For example, SARA 2020.
3. Trends and special analysis.
4. Equity analysis - SES; urban/rural; regions, age, and sex.
This study is expected to take 22 months, starting in August 2020 and ending in May 2022. Ifakara Health Institute will be conducting this study and will receive support from Global Financing Facility (GFF) through Africa Population and Health Research Centre (APHRC), the funding partners. The principal investigator for this study is Dr. Honorati Masanja while the project coordinator is Josephine Shabani. Ritha Godfrey is the project administrator.
