Read The Story

Pathfinder has worked in Tanzania for more than six decades to improve sexual and reproductive health; boost climate resilience; improve maternal, newborn, and child health; and prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence. Pathfinder works to ensure women and girls receive quality sexual and reproductive health care, including access to quality comprehensive post-abortion care abortion services.


Pathfinder’s programs across the country strengthen health systems and support community health through health worker training, use of digital technologies, and integration of conservation practices and reproductive health education.  

  • Strengthen health facilities and train community health workers so that more people in more places have access to contraceptive information and services. 
  • Implement behavior change interventions to eliminate stigma and transform harmful gender and social norms through existing platforms and networks, such as community health workers, community radio, community group discussions, and dialogues. 
  • Train health providers to deliver services young people and adolescents need and deserve, including post-abortion care that can save their lives, without stigma or bias.
  • Pioneer the use of low-cost digital technology to transform the way health care is delivered in Tanzania, creating a lifeline for people who live far from health facilities. 
  • Advocate for community health workers to provide a wider range of contraceptives beyond condoms and pills, especially DMPA-SQ (Sayana Press), paving the way for an increase in choices and self-care options. 
  • Mobilize remote communities to advance their reproductive rights and economic opportunity, while sustainably managing their natural resources. 

Give women and girls control over their future.

Your support provides the reproductive care women and girls need to thrive.
