Main Volumes

Volume 1 (11.3 Mb) The main findings. Volume 1 takes into account the specific need for policy-relevant information and indicators of population health and survival in several contexts including: A renewed emphasis on statistics, cost-effective information systems, and the use of information for policy, planning, monitoring, and evaluation; The needs of a decentralized health system for userfriendly information that can inform and facilitate action; The fundamental link between poverty reduction and health and the imperative to ensure that needs of the least well off members of society are reaching the eyes and ears of decision-makers; and The increasing awareness of the importance of understanding the health situation of adults in Tanzania.
Volume 2 (120 Mb) Volume 2 collects many of the publications produced by or in association with AMMP since its inception in 1992. These publications have been some of the most important outputs of the project (and yes, it really is 120 Mb)
Volume 3 (8 Mb) Methods and validation studies. Volume 3 represents a compendium of the methods and tools developed in AMMP over more than a decade. It also includes validations of the methods. This volume is intended to aid those who may wish to adopt or adapt AMMP methods to other settings and to provide documentation of the development, validity, and performance of these tools in the field.
Volume 4 (12 Mb) Burden of Disease summaries for each site and year. Volume 4 contains annual mortality burden profiles for each sentinel area for the years 1994-2002. The profiles were developed to aid Council Health Management Teams (CHMTs) in the annual production of comprehensive council health plans. The documents seek to inform council health planners about (a) the extent of the mortality burden that might be addressed by proven and available interventions and intervention packages, and (b) which intervention packages correspond to high levels of addressable mortality.

Executive Summary and Posters

The Executive summary and posters are available in two PDF versions. The 'normal' files are smaller, should look (mostly?) fine on screen but might be a little funky if you do not have the right fonts installed and print them out.

The 'vector' versions are larger, have the fonts embedded as vectors and should print fine, at any size from A4 or letter size upwards, even if you don't have the fonts we used installed on your computer.

Executive Summary

Executive Summary (5.3 Mb) ('normal' version)

Posters

These were originally produced as A0 posters and A4 handouts. The vector versions should scale well to any size.
