The HIV/AIDS pandemic, coupled with other factors such as poverty, is the major cause of increased numbers of orphans and vulnerable children in Tanzania. To address this concern, Tanzania’s Ministry of Health and Social Welfare led the development of the National Guidelines for Improving Quality of Care, Support, and Protection for Most Vulnerable Children in Tanzania (2009).This short report describes how the USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) is implementing the guidelines to support local authorities and implementers in Bagamoyo District in strengthening the capacity of community systems to provide care, support, and protection of most vulnerable children through the application of quality improvement methods.
