EngenderHealth, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC), works in Tanzania nationwide on family planning (FP), gender issues, FP-HIV integration, and other health initiatives. The expansion of EngenderHealth’s FP program to all 26 regions of the country has contributed to women’s having a wider choice of methods, including the highly effective but harder to deliver hormonal implants, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and permanent methods, such as female sterilization. Increased access and choice has led to rising use of contraception, through interventions like the RESPOND Tanzania Project (RTP), which expanded services to lower-level facilities and promoted task shifting to nurse practitioners for implants and IUDs. The use of hormonal implants in Tanzania has increased steadily since 2004.
