Reducing Maternal Mortality in Tanzania: 2018 Pregnancy Outcomes Study in Kigoma Region, Tanzania File icon

The CDC's Division of Reproductive Health monitors and evaluates activities of the Reducing Maternal Mortality in Tanzania Project in the remote Kigoma region of western Tanzania. As part of that project, this evaluation collected and analyzed data on maternal and perinatal health outcomes as well as the capacity and functionality of emergency obstetric and neonatal care (EmONC) services.

The evaluation used a pregnancy outcomes monitoring system (POMS) method to collect and examine data from 200 health facilities. This method collects data from labor and delivery registers, operating theater registers, admission and discharge registers, case notes, in-patient postpartum care registers, nurses' report books, and obstetric wards daily reports. The evaluation also employed a modified form of Rapid Ascertainment Process for Institutional Deaths (RAPID), a method that aims to identify all maternal deaths occurring in a facility.

Tanzania - Kigoma Health Facility Assessment of Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care Services 2018 File icon

The CDC's Division of Reproductive Health monitors and evaluates activities of the Reducing Maternal Mortality in Tanzania Project in the remote Kigoma region of western Tanzania. As part of that project, this survey collected data on changes in emergency obstetric and neonatal care (EmONC) capacity and quality, maternal and neonatal care and family planning, pregnancy outcomes, and maternal morbidity and mortality. Data were collected by visiting 197 health facilities and administering an enhanced health facility assessment (HFA) questionnaire.

Results of the survey are reported in "Health Facility Assessment of Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care Services in Kigoma Region, Tanzania Selected Findings, 2018."

Global HIV/AIDS Spending 2000-2016 File icon

Research by the Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network estimated HIV/AIDS spending for 137 low- and middle-income countries for 2000-2016. The estimates cover HIV/AIDS spending disaggregated by source into three domestic financing source categories (government, out-of-pocket, and prepaid private) and development assistance for health (DAH). Spending is also disaggregated by function, including care and treatment, prevention, and other spending. Domestic HIV/AIDS spending by source and function was estimated based on five major data sources: the AIDSinfo online database, Global Fund concept notes and proposals, National Health Accounts (NHAs), National AIDS Spending Assessments, and the AIDS data hub. Development assistance for HIV/AIDS data were drawn from IHME's 2018 Development Assistance for Health Database. Estimates are reported in constant 2018 United States dollars.

Global Expected Health Spending 2017-2050 File icon

Research by the Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network produced projected health spending estimates for 2017-2050 for 195 countries and territories. The estimates cover total health spending, and health spending disaggregated by source into three domestic financing source categories (government, out-of-pocket, and prepaid private) and development assistance for health (DAH). Retrospective health spending estimates for 1995-2016 and key covariates (including GDP per capita, total government spending, total fertility rate, and fraction of the population older than 65 years) were used to forecast GDP and health spending through 2050. Estimates are reported in constant 2018 US dollars, constant 2018 purchasing-power parity-adjusted (PPP) dollars, and as a percent of gross domestic product.

Global Health Spending 1995-2016 File icon

Research by the Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network produced retrospective health spending estimates for 1995-2016 for 195 countries and territories. The estimates cover total health spending, and health spending disaggregated by source into three domestic financing source categories (government, out-of-pocket, and prepaid private) and development assistance for health (DAH). Domestic health spending source data came primarily from the WHO’s Global Health Expenditure Database (GHED). DAH data came from a diverse set of sources, including program reports, budget data, national estimates, and National Health Accounts (NHAs). The resulting estimates were used to help produce prospective health spending estimates for 2017-2050. Estimates are reported in constant 2018 United States dollars, constant 2018 purchasing-power parity-adjusted (PPP) dollars, and as a percent of gross domestic product.

Africa Exclusive Breastfeeding Prevalence Geospatial Estimates 2000-2017 File icon

Estimates were produced for exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) prevalence among infants under 6 months of age at the 5x5 km-level in 49 countries in Africa between 2000-2017.

The surveys include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and country‐specific and other multinational surveys.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of EBF prevalence
  • CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at the zero, first, and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
