In 2012, Tanzania pledged to increase the availability of modern contraception methods at all levels of its health system. With a promise to increase its allocation for family planning commodities from 14 billion to 17 billion by 2020, Tanzania is strengthening outreach services, engaging policy, and challenging traditional norms and family sizes. Recognizing that a healthier population leads to a more prospering nation, the Government of Tanzania committed to increasing the availability of modern contraceptive methods at all levels of the health system from 40% to 70% by 2020. With one of the highest child marriage prevalence rates in the world, the government’s commitment to reform key policies related to age of marriage, teenage childbearing, and scaling up youth friendly reproductive health facilities reflects its vision for a healthier development agenda for the nation’s girls and women.

Tanzania FP2020 Commitment
Tanzania is committed to doubling the number of family planning users to 4.2 million by 2015 to reach a national contraceptive prevalence rate of 60 %. The government will increase its financial allocation for family planning, while strengthening partnerships to continue implementing the National Family Planning Costed Implementation Program (NFPCIP). Additionally, the government will execute a FP2020 Action Plan (2013-2015) to address regional disparities and inequalities through training, capacity-building, community-based services, and interventions targeting young people and post-partum women, with a particular focus on the Lake and Western Zones. Through public-private partnerships and training for service providers and local staff, the government will improve contraceptive commodity security, logistics systems, and method mix. Strategic communications will be used to address barriers to family planning use, through a country-wide campaign carried out at the national and sub-national level.
Tanzania: Postpartum Family Planning Action Plan
The tool aims to guide country teams of maternal, child and reproductive health policymakers, program managers and champions of family planning in systematically planning country-specific, evidence-based “PPFP Programming Strategies” that can address short interpregnancy intervals and postpartum unmet need and increase postpartum women’s access to family planning services.
