This fact sheet focuses on the Global Financing Facility (GFF) in Tanzania. Wemos’ fact sheet on the GFF explains the general functioning of this health financing model supporting countries in reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, and adolescent health and nutrition (RMNCAH+N). Tanzania was among the four front runner countries where GFF country consultations started in 2015 and is now in its third year of implementation since May 2015.

Investment Case (IC): “National Road Map Strategic Plan to Improve Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health in Tanzania (2016-2020)” – known as “One Plan II”.

The IC is co-financed with funding from World Bank (IDA), the GFF Trust Fund, ANIS and USAID, as outlined in the Project Appraisal Document (PAD): “Strengthening Primary Health Care for Results Program” (PHC4R)

Project period: May 2015 – June 2020

Objective: improve the quality of primary health care services nationwide with a focus on maternal, neonatal, and child health services

Total project cost: USD 300 million, out of which:

  • IDA: 200 million
  • GFF: 40 million
  • USAID Trust Fund: 40 million
  • ANIS (Power for Nutrition multi donor trust fund): 20 million

The ratio of the IDA loan to GFF Trust Fund grant is therefore 5:1. Other development partners are expected to contribute USD 290 million
