Description and results

Description

This project fully supports the Ministerial commitment of contributing $650M over three years in support of SRHR initiatives and the Ministerial priority of empowering women and girls. It also contributes to the Africa target. The project would address critical gaps in SRHR in Tanzania by partnering with Marie Stopes Tanzania (MST), the country’s largest specialised SRHR and family planning organization. Through support to MST’s outreach teams and network of clinics, the project would reduce unintended pregnancies and improve women & girls’ access to youth friendly, life-saving reproductive health services, including modern contraceptives and post-abortion care (unsafe abortion is a major cause of maternal death).

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved access to high quality sexual and reproductive health (especially family planning and comprehensive post-abortion care) products and services among women and girls in Tanzania (especially youth-friendly service provision); and (2) improved utilisation of sexual and reproductive health (especially family planning and comprehensive post-abortion care) services by women and girls in Tanzania.

Results achieved

The results achieved as of March 2022 include: (1) improved access to high quality sexual and reproductive health for 527,102 clients and provided them with quality family planning services; (2) provided 17,970 girls and women with quality, respectful post-abortion care; (3) 132,401 women and girls were provided with mobile and life-saving cervical cancer screening and referral (as necessary) for treatment; (4) provided 3,190 poor and vulnerable women and girls with waivers to allow them to receive life-saving post-abortion care for free; and (5) averted a cumulative total of 1762 maternal deaths, 772,183 unintended pregnancies and 214,272 unsafe abortions through access to contraceptives and comprehensive post abortion care.
