Strengthening Data Quality for Better Health Policies, Programs, and Services in Tanzania Abstract:

Since 2008, MEASURE Evaluation–Tanzania (MEval-TZ) has conducted annual data quality assessments (DQAs) and provided monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capacity building through customized trainings and mentoring among more than 40 implementing partners (IPs). These groups worked in HIV prevention, care, and treatment; most vulnerable children; home-based care; and HIV testing and counseling programs. Through DQAs, the project assessed strengths and weaknesses in data collection, compilation, and reporting from health facilities to the district, regional, and national levels; strengthened M&E systems and the quality of data reported; and built M&E sustainability by strengthening the capacity of IP M&E staff, members of regional and council health management teams, and health facility staff to conduct routine DQAs without reliance on external support.
