Tanzania

Tanzania is home to roughly 56.32 million people, most of whom live in rural areas with limited access to reproductive healthcare. As a result, 22% of Tanzanian women would like to plan their families but do not have access to contraceptives, many pregnant Tanzanian women do not receive testing or counseling for HIV, and only 63% of Tanzanian mothers deliver their babies at a health facility.

Since 1982, EngenderHealth has served as a key partner to the Government of Tanzania’s Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, the Elderly, and Children and has contributed to changing the healthcare landscapeexpanding access to sexual and reproductive health services across the country. Today, long-acting reversible contraception and permanent methods of contraception are in especially high demand in Tanzania

EngenderHealth has also led the integration of family planning with HIV and comprehensive postabortion care services. The expansion of our family planning programs across all regions of the country has contributed to women having a wider choice of contraceptive methods, including hormonal implants, intrauterine devices, and permanent methodsWe support public health facilities to increase access to and use of family planning through routine services and family planning events, as well as support the health system to use mobileoutreach services to improve access for hard-to-reach communities.

Current Projects: 

  • Scaling Up Family Planning Programme (SuFP) (2019-2024): EngenderHealth is scaling up access to and utilization of quality family planning services in eight regions of Tanzania mainland and all five regions in Zanzibar.

  • Postabortion Care Family Planning (PAC-FP) Project (2014-2020): The PAC-FP Project contributes to reductions in preventable child and maternal deaths by expanding the method mix of contraceptives available to comprehensive postabortion care clients with an emphasis on long-acting reversible contraception.
