What we do

THPS supports the provision of comprehensive HIV Prevention, Care, Treatment and Support services across general, key and vulnerable populations in Pwani, Kigoma, and Zanzibar. THPS believes sustainable health services result from Health systems strengthening at all WHO six blocks:

  • Improving service delivery through technical assistance, mentorship and training to health providers to ensure services are implemented according to national/international standards
  • Health infrastructure upgrades for improved quality of services e.g. repairs to facilitate TB infection control, placement of laboratory equipment,
  • National level support to scale up HIV viral load testing
  • Improve health records documentation and storage including the use of electronic Health management information systems (HMIS) and data quality assurance
  • Improve provider skills to foster appropriate use of national central supply chain system for medicines, supplies and HIV commodities. THPS is a member of various MoHCDGEC technical working groups
  • Provide financial support to local government authorities/ NGOs and Faith based organizations to complement their HIV response
