The Health Promotion and System Strengthening (HPSS) project strives to improve quality and utilization of health services in the Dodoma region. At the same time, we are cultivating an effective, well-governed, accessible health care system that can be scaled up to a national level. The goal of the project is to improve the health status and wellbeing of Tanzanians, focusing on those most at risk, and to support health systems in becoming more responsive to health needs for all population groups. It’s our objective to improve quality, access to, and utilization of health resources and services, and to see these services delivered by an effective and well-governed health system.
The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) is a world-leading institution in health research, training and services. It improves, maintains and promotes the health of individuals and societies all around the globe. A special emphasis is on resource-constrained countries.
