  • In 2011, HCI/ ASSIST began a District Health Management Performance improvement intervention with the aim of building the capacities of Regional and Council (District) Health Management Teams in district management - meaning to effectively manage and coordinate health human resources, monitoring and evaluation through better management of district health information systems, and supply chains (supplies and logistics), and Council health planning, which will ultimately improve care services and health outcomes for HIV/AIDS patients. In the Lindi region are six districts, including 192 facilities (district hospitals, health centers, and dispensaries). Those districts are: Kilwa (41facilities), Lindi DC (41 facilities), Lindi Municipal (15 facilities), Nachingwea (36 facilities), and Ruangwa (29 facilities), and Liwale (30 facilities)
  • Notice that we have the ordering because they are not able to effect the outcome.
