In Tanzania, MCSP provides technical support to the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children focused on ensuring that all women, newborns and children who are most in need have equitable access to high-quality health care services that save lives.

In 2014, based on earlier work supported by MCSP’s predecessor project, the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), MCSP conducted an in-depth assessment of the Comprehensive Council Health Plan (CCHP) development process in Tanzania’s Kagera Region.
