The Data Use Partnership (DUP) is a Government-led initiative that is improving the national health care system through better use of health information. DUP aims to strengthen the digital health and build local capacity so that everyone – from government policy makers to health workers to patients – can use health information to make more informed decisions, leading to a healthier Tanzania.
The DUP supports the implementation of Tanzania’s Digital Health Investment Road Map, which builds upon the 2013-2018 eHealth Strategy. The Road Map outlines 17 investment recommendations for using data to improve health services and outcomes.
