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 174 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, 2016."
