Working closely with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children (MoHCDGEC), m2m will provide the Tanzanian Government with Technical Assistance and guide the development process of a national PMTCT Operational Framework for improved care across facilities and communities. Despite the relatively large number of Tanzanians living with HIV, Tanzania has done well to control the HIV epidemic over the last decade. In 2018, 1.6 million people were living with HIV in Tanzania. Scaling up access to antiretroviral treatment (ART) has meant that between 2010 and 2018, the number of new infections declined by 13% and the number of people dying from an AIDS-related illness has halved. Our office in the capital city Dodoma, sees m2m extend its footprint to 10 sub-Saharan Africa nations. Our work in Tanzania is funded through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under the RISE II mechanism. We will be leveraging our 19 years of experience to support in multiple ways, including advising on policy development and implementation, providing training and capacity building support to government teams and local partners, and helping to measure success. m2m previously concluded a successful project in Tanzania between 2008 and 2012, which included direct service delivery. We will continue to develop strategic partnerships with key stakeholders to enhance m2m’s effort and commitment towards adding value to the 90/90/90 targets and contribute to controlling the epidemic in Tanzania.
