Jobs in Tanzania 2019: New Job at THET Tanzania, Field Project Coordinator | Deadline: 30th June, 2019
Job Title: Field Project Coordinator, Tanzania
Position Summary
In 2016, THET was awarded a grant from Comic Relief to support the Tanzanian Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MoHCDGEC) to train and roll out the first formal cadre of paid Community Health Workers (CHWs) under the current Building National Training Capacity to Implement the Community Based Health Programme Strategic Plan (2015 – 2020).

We are now conducting a one-year project to strengthen the quality of service provision delivered by formal CHWs in two districts of the Lake Zone of Tanzania and contribute to the evidence base as to the value of CHWs in order to achieve universal health coverage. For the last three years, we have implemented a multi-level approach: supporting the capacity development of ten health training institutes and system strengthening at the district and regional level.

We have advocated for and supported policy development at the national level and its implementation at regional and district level. Through our presence in MoHCDGEC taskforces and technical working groups we have supported curriculum development, recruitment and retention, development of supervision tools and planning and budgeting of CHWs. This has resulted in the training of over 1300 formal community health workers, the capacity development of 174 district and health managers on community-based health programmes, and development of policy guidelines including the scheme of service and the review of the CHW curriculum to harmonise it to the needs of communities.
