The Development Partners Group for Health (DPG Health) is a collection of 19 bi-lateral and multi-lateral agencies supporting the health sector in Tanzania. DPG Health is organized around terms of reference and a code of conduct agreed between government and DPs and is organized through a troika chairing structure (an incoming, present and outgoing chairing arrangement). These act as the lead of the DPG Health, with other DPs either active or delegating members, in accordance with the division of labour outlined in the Joint Assistance Strategy for Tanzania (JAST). The DPG Health is supported by a secretariat housed in the World Health Organisation.
The work in the group is conducted knowing that private sector development is important in generating sustainable growth and poverty reduction in Tanzania.
