MCSP worked with the Government of Tanzania (GoT) and in-country partners to expand access to high-quality reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health services (RMNCH). By helping to introduce and scale up high-impact, sustainable interventions, we increased utilization of services across the continuum of care — from the hospital to the community, and from pre-pregnancy through postnatal care. MCSP also supported health systems strengthening, HIV/RMNCH integration, and pre-service education.
In Kagera and Mara regions, we collaborated with partners to improve the coverage, quality and sustainability of a fully integrated package of services. And throughout the country we provided immunization services (Kagera, Simiyu and Tabora); addressed cervical cancer prevention (Iringa and Njombe regions); and scaled up comprehensive emergency obstetric and newborn care, and postpartum IUD services (Zanzibar). In total, the program covered 225 health facilities.
