The United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) are partnering to support innovative approaches to ensure evidence-based decision-making for programs and policies that address HIV/AIDS, global health, gender equality and economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa. In April 2015, the $21.8 million “Data Collaboratives for Local Impact” (DCLI) program was launched and the first two projects are underway in Tanzania. These projects are funded by PEPFAR and are being implemented by MCC. These projects will strengthen the availability and use of data to improve lives and empower citizens to hold governments and donors more accountable for results.
DCLI is aligned with broader U.S. government efforts to maximize the effectiveness of U.S. foreign assistance, and with the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data to provide a practical country-level demonstration of how the data revolution will enhance efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).For more details,click here.
