What We Do

  • Strengthens the capacity of local service providers (public, private, faith-based health facilities and community) to provide quality family planning, malaria, maternal and child services.
  • Integrates family planning services into other MCH services, especially immediate post-partum family planning counseling, at HIV treatment sites to support the needs of women living with HIV to access family planning services.
  • Contributes to reducing death and disease by supporting prevention, care, referrals, and education related to malnutrition.
  • Deploys mobile clinics during periods of peak malaria incidence to hardest hit areas in the northern and southern provinces to provide malaria services. Implements malaria control activities.
  • Enlists the support of community leaders and gatekeepers in community education and mobilization related to new malaria treatment guidelines.
  • Uses radio programs to bolster and intensify campaigns for behavior change related to health issues addressed by Tubiteho.
  • Seeks to reduce gender-based violence by conducting gender sensitization trainings with project and partner staff, enabling them to integrate what they learn into project interventions.
