More than 262,000 new users of contraception

242 health providers in Tanzania trained on postpartum IUD insertion

Nearly 13,000 women received safe comprehensive postabortion care

1,000+ community health workers trained to provide quality counseling, short-acting methods, and referrals for further services to women in communities

What We Do

  • Make sure short-term, long-acting, permanent, and emergency contraception are always available so people of all ages can choose the method that’s best for them
  • Ensure availability of quality, non-judgmental, youth-friendly, safe, and comprehensive abortion care and postabortion care
  • Train community health workers to counsel women in communities on sexual and reproductive health services, directly provide women with short-acting contraceptives, and refer them to health facilities for further services
  • Engage communities in systematic processes to hold health facilities accountable for provision of high-quality, rights-based contraceptive and abortion services
