11 L ESSONS LEARNED II More guidance from central level MOH to DPS would facilitate planning and implementation process More consensus building needed among central level MOH & CDC to better define indicators and targets; strengthen M&E system to monitor transition Need for better harmonization of tools used by Track 1.0 transition implementers (planning, finance training, funding proposal writing) to standardize the USG approach for DPS support 8th Annual Track 1.0 ART Program Meeting Maputo - ICAP Mozambique August 11th, 2010
