Since 1999, our focus has been on quality health services for families.
- More than 4.3 million Tanzanians learned their HIV status through Jhpiego-led initiatives and more than 1 million men received voluntary medical male circumcision services for HIV prevention.
- Over 84,000 women have been screened for cervical cancer, with the majority of the women who were identified as having precancerous lesions and eligible for cryotherapy being treated on the same day as their screening
- A total of 1.6 million clients received family planning methods; these clients include more than 519,000 youths and adolescents.
- More than 9 million adults received COVID-19 vaccinations, achieving the 70% national target for COVID-19 vaccination coverage and improved uptake of COVID-19/routine immunization services.
Our Work in Tanzania
USAID Afya Yangu-RMNCAH
This five-year, government-led project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. Afya Yangu seeks to improve access to quality, client-centered reproductive, maternal, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH) services at facility and community levels. The project also works for an enhanced enabling environment, improved health-seeking behaviors, strengthened linkages between facility and community health services, improved positive gender norms in support of services uptake and increased community engagement in RMNCAH services. In partnership with the Ministry of Health, Jhpiego leads the project team, which consists of: local partners Tanzania Communication and Development Center, Benjamin Mkapa Foundation and Amani Girls Home; Kenya-based AI-Fluence; and U.S.-based organizations Manoff Group, Ona and D-tree International.
MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership
Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn and Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health Services to Scale (MOMENTUM) is a suite of projects, funded by USAID, that aims to accelerate reductions in maternal, newborn and child mortality and morbidity in high-burden countries by increasing host country commitment and capacity to provide high-quality, integrated health care. Each of the projects has a specific focus area; together they provide a comprehensive, flexible package of support for countries as they overcome context-specific health challenges towards sustainable development. The five-year, Jhpiego-led MOMENTUM 2A project focuses on: 1) providing targeted technical and capacity development assistance to our missions, partner countries and local organizations; and 2) contributing to global technical leadership and policy dialogue for improved maternal, newborn and child health, voluntary family planning and reproductive health outcomes. Jhpiego’s 12 sub-partners under MOMENTUM 2A are: Save the Children, Johns Hopkins University International Vaccine Access Center, The Manoff Group, Quicksand, Matchboxology, BAO Systems, Avenir Health, McKinsey and Company, PACT, Institute for Healthcare Improvement, Christian Connections for International Health and Ubora Quality Institute. In Tanzania, Jhpiego and IVAC are supporting the Government of Tanzania to enhance sustainability practices and strengthen technical rigor of pre-service education at government health training institutions as well as immunization programming in targeted geographies.
The Challenge Initiative (TCI) NextGen
As the implementing partner responsible for leading TCI’s East Africa Accelerator Hub, Jhpiego provides technical assistance to local governments in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda as they implement interventions in family planning and adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health. The goal of TCI NextGen, which builds on the previous TCI initiative, is to increase access to modern contraception for urban poor women. This project is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health.
Reaching Impact, Saturation, and Epidemic Control (RISE)
RISE is a five-year global project funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). RISE works with countries to achieve a shared vision of attaining and maintaining epidemic control, with stronger local partners capable of managing and achieving results through sustainable, self-reliant and resilient health systems by 2024. RISE’s contributions to this work will lead to fewer new HIV infections, decreased HIV-related morbidity and mortality, and increased quality of life for people living with HIV. With USAID PEPFAR investments, RISE supports countries to achieve and maintain epidemic control by providing strategic technical assistance and direct service delivery to improve HIV prevention, case finding, treatment programming, and viral load suppression. The primary objectives of the RISE project are to: 1) attain and maintain HIV epidemic control among at-risk adult men, women and priority populations; 2) attain and maintain HIV epidemic control among key populations; 3) strengthen health systems including improved program management, health information systems, human resources for health and financial systems to ensure attainment and maintenance of epidemic control; and 4) support the transition of direct funding and implementation to capable local partners to meet the PEPFAR goal of 70% of funding to local partners by 2020. The project is led by Jhpiego with the following partners: ICAP at Columbia University, Management Sciences for Health, Anova, BAO Systems, Johns Hopkins University Center for Public Health and Human Rights, and Mann Global Health. RISE is currently active in several countries, including Tanzania.
Technical Assistance for HIV Differentiated Service Delivery
Jhpiego has been contracted by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to support their country programs to leverage evidence, learning and best practices about differentiated service delivery (DSD). DSD refers to a client-centered approach that simplifies and adapts HIV service across the cascade of services to better serve individual needs and reduce unnecessary burdens on the health system. Jhpiego supports standardization of approaches and innovations, and develops country-specific technical briefs, training materials and tools that leverage the latest DSD science and best practices relevant to country contexts.
