We strive to create an enabling environment where government and civil society are confident, efficient and equipped with appropriate skill sets to design, manage, implement, and monitor high-quality health and social service programming. CHSSP is implemented in high HIV-prevalence districts across Tanzania and is national in scope with a goal of supporting the government of Tanzania to respond to HIV related issues by engaging community and facility-based providers in a system with life-saving services. In order to better support the health and social welfare realms in Tanzania, we led efforts to develop a comprehensive referral and linkages system, the National Integrated Case Management System of NICMS (NICMS). Finalised in 2017, the NICMS standardizes care and protection for MVC and their families. We work with the Government of Tanzania to support the NICMS by:

  • Connecting and coordinating all service providers working with children across the different sectors of HIV/health, protection, and social welfare
  • Supporting national-level collaboration, leadership, capacity building, and expansion of the social welfare workforce to increase access to and quality of services for people living with HIV, adolescent girls and young women, and vulnerable children and their families
  • Ensuring our harmonized approach to case management facilitates comprehensive referral and linkages across health and social welfare providers, thus ensuring that vulnerable populations, and especially children, receive the services they need
