(1/2) Young people often prefer to go to pharmacies rather than clinics for #FamilyPlanning info and products. But high costs and provider bias at pharmacies can deter young people from getting the care and services they desire.

Maternal and Reproductive Health Project

EngenderHealth and Thamini Uhai implemented the Maternal and Reproductive Health Project in Kigoma, Tanzania, over a six-year period. Originally awarded by the Bloomberg Philanthropies and Foundation H & B Agerup as a three-year initiative in May 2013, the project was extended to April 2019. Under the project, EngenderHealth expanded access to family planning and postabortion care services in Kigoma.

EngenderHealth ensured clients full and free access to comprehensive family planning and postabortion care services and built the local government’s capacity to sustain these services.

Key results of EngenderHealth’s work on the project include:

  • Upgraded the infrastructure and equipment of 31 health facilities to offer quality family planning and postabortion care services.
  • Trained 16 family planning and postabortion care trainers in eight of Kigoma’s districts.
  • Strengthened the health system to offer quality family planning services by training  family planning counselors, supervisors, managers, and support personnel.
  • Supported the provision of more than 395,225 modern contraceptive methods, equivalent to more than 1,215,324 couple years of protection.

Key impacts of the project include:

  • 483,795 unintended pregnancies averted
  • 269,900 live births averted
  • 142,582 abortions averted
  • 993 maternal deaths averted
  • 9,569 child deaths averted
  • 108,685 unsafe abortions averted
