All family planning partners and stakeholders work towards complementing government efforts to attain national family planning milestones. By 2020 for example, Tanzania intends to attain a 45% growth in modern CPR from the current 32% (2015), and a 60% CPR for all methods. It would also like to see its maternal mortality rate drop to 293 per 100,000 live births, and infant and child mortality rates at 31 and 51 per 1000 live births, respectively, by 2020. A number of national and international organizations work collaboratively with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children to provide information, services and supplies to people in need. While some partners are fully engaged in delivering family planning services through static and outreach approaches to young people and adults, others have been investing in capacity strengthening of family planning service providers, in data collection, analysis and interpretation, as well as in strengthening systems such as electronic Logistics Management Information System (eLMIS) and Integrated Logistics System (ILS-Gateway).
Family planning implementers continue to enhance advocacy work, and strategic communication to deepen the public and leadership understanding on family planning and its rationale in sustainable development. Bilateral and multi-lateral partners have been critical actors in ensuring contraceptive security in Tanzania. All actors are coordinated through technical working groups such as the National Family Planning Technical Working Group – a forum to foster a more cohesive approach to interventions through mutual learning and holding each other accountable to the outcomes.
