Preparing Afya-Tek for Government-Led Scale as part of the National Unified Community System

Project Details


Afya-Tek Phase 2 approach

Based on the positive findings from Phase 1 of the program and the identified pathway to scale, we believe that Afya-Tek has the potential to transform the primary health system in Tanzania and eventually serve as a model to be replicated in other LMICs. With generous support from Fondation Botnar, we have designed Phase 2 of the program with four objectives:

1. Secure Afya-Tek’s pathway for sustainable national scale by extending the existing Unified Community System (UCS)–the national digital community system led by Tanzania’s Ministry of Health–to include Afya-Tek functionality and implement it in Kibaha.

2. Cultivate the government and critical influencers’ continued commitment and preparedness to scale and sustain Afya-Tek through the UCS by employing evidence-based advocacy and continuously documenting program learning and effectiveness.

3. Strengthen Afya-Tek at the community and ADDO levels and test promising innovations to increase ADDO and adolescent participation and engagement.

4. Expand the extended UCS with Afya-Tek functionalities to include interventions for high-priority health areas such as non-communicable diseases, malnutrition, and access to essential medicines.
