ALMA is supporting the United Republic of Tanzania’s Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MoHCDEC) in the implementation of the country’s malaria, Reproductive Maternal Newborn Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) and Nutrition scorecard management tools for accountability and action.
Tanzania’s National Malaria Control Programme developed the malaria scorecard management tool for accountability and action in 2016 with support from ALMA and partners. The scorecard tool is used to increase awareness about the malaria situation, support the identification of bottlenecks and drive action. The scorecard is also used by Tanzania’s Parliamentary Committee against (TAPAMA), and mobile app was developed with support from ALMA for use by parliamentarians. The scorecard Tool was officially launched on 8 November 2019, during SADC malaria day alongside the country’s “Zero Malaria Starts With Me” campaign. Since the launch, ALMA has supported the MoHCDEC in the decentralisation of the scorecard management tool.
Tanzania’s RMNCAH scorecard management tool for action and accountability was first developed by the MoHCDEC in 2014 in collaboration with ALMA and partners. The scorecard tool is used to track key maternal and child health indicators, identify bottlenecks and drive action at the national and regional level. ALMA has supported the MoHCDEC in the strengthening of the scorecard management tool.
Tanzania first developed its nutrition scorecard management tool for accountability & action in 2015, with support from ALMA and partners. Tanzania’s nutrition scorecard is a multi-sectoral effort bringing together stakeholders in health, education, gender and social welfare, agriculture, water and sanitation. The scorecard is used to track key indicators, identify bottlenecks and spur action at national and regional level.
