In 2015, Mzumbe University launched a Centre of Excellence in Health Monitoring and Evaluation (CoE) – the first of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa. The Centre of Excellence aims to contribute to research, dissemination, expertise and teaching in the field of M&E in Tanzania and beyond, by offering:
- a two-year intensive Master of Science degree in Health Monitoring and Evaluation;
- intensive week-long short courses building capacity in The Use of M&E for Quality and Programme Improvement in the Health Sector as well as Data Management and Analysis in the Health Sector; and an annual conference in applied health monitoring and evaluation, the first of which was held in 2017.

The first short course offered by the CoE, The Use of M&E for Quality and Programme Improvement in the Health Sector, was held in September 2015.
