  • Ensure high-quality HIV and TB care, treatment, and support for Tanzanian citizens by training health care workers in prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) and in provision of antiretroviral therapy (ART) and support for service delivery sites in quality improvement through supportive supervision.
  • Increase the capacity of regional and district health teams to roll out, supervise, monitor and evaluate HIV testing and counseling (HTC) services in the Morogoro region of Tanzania. 
  • Strengthen pre-service curricula of Clinical Assistants and Clinical Officers, standardize training materials, and increase HIV and TB/HIV resources available to pre-service training institutions.
  • Strengthen distance education programs for health care workers, including integrating the use of mobile technology (tablets) and e-learning for the MOHCDGEC Clinical Assistant to Clinical Officer upgrading program. 
  • Strengthen the capacity of the Zonal Health Resource Centres (ZHRC) Network, a hub for training activities governed by the MOHCDGEC, to coordinate, support, monitor, and evaluate decentralized HIV and AIDS training for health care workers. 
  • Develop and implement strategies to strengthen the operational systems and informational resources of ZHRCs so they can continue to support the professional development of tutors (faculty) at pre-service training institutions. 
  • Support the MOHCDGEC to increase the number of qualified health care workers deployed to staff dispensaries, health centers, and care and treatment clinics at district, regional and national levels.
  • Support the MOHCDGEC Human Resources for Health Scale-up program in its effort to train critical cadres of health care workers, especially enrolled nurses, clinical assistants, clinical officers, and laboratory technicians.
  • Implement TrainSMART, a database system created by I-TECH to track health care worker training, and work to integrate TrainSMART with the national Human Resource Information System (HRIS). 
  • Integrate competency-based training on Infection Prevention and Control (IPC), Quality Improvement (QI), voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC), Early Infant Male Circumcision (EIMC), Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV, Family Planning, and Gender-Based Violence (GBV) into new and existing pre-service training programs and teaching materials.
