Sources of Family Planning: Tanzania

More than one-third of modern contraceptive users in Tanzania obtain their method from the private sector. Understanding where women acquire their family planning methods is important to increase access to modern contraception and catalyze efforts to meet Tanzania’s Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSP IV) goals and Family Planning 2020 commitments. This brief presents a secondary analysis of the 2015-16 Tanzania Demographic and Health Survey. It describes where modern contraceptive users obtain their method and examines the contribution of the private sector to family planning in Tanzania.
