Tanzania - Strategic Planning for USAID Health and Population Activities
USAID (2000)

The strategic planning team arranged and facilitated a series of consensus-building meetings for policy-level officials and other stakeholders, culminating in a five-day workshop where participants revised USAID's strategic objectives for the sector and helped formulate practical "results packages" to enhance the use of USAID resources allocated to health and population programs.
