                     Challenges facing CS

 Decreasing allocations of funds through the MTEF

 Late, partial, irregular release of funds

 Delays in the procurement process

 Nationwide stock-outs for some products (funding /
  procurement issues)

 Localized stock-outs for others (stock management / re-
  ordering issues)
                                                            4
Efforts to reposition FP in Tanzania

   The MOHSW recognized the downtrend of
      Family Planning in Tanzania
     In collaboration with the partners, the MOHSW
      is making a lot of efforts to Reposition Family
      Planning
     Part of this efforts includes the establishment of
      the National FP Technical Working Group and
      development of a National Family Planning
      Costed Implementation Plan (NFPCIP)

                                                           5
   Purposes of the NFCIP

NFPCIP will be used to:
 Inform policy makers
 Strengthen FP planning and budgeting within the
  National Development Agenda at National,
  Regional and District levels
 Clarify budgetary needs for implementing an
  effective Family Planning program



                                                    6
 Purposes of the NFCIP cont..

 Mobilize and sustain quality resources (financial,
    human, technical, commodities and equipment)
   Develop benchmarks that will be used to
    monitor and support the FP program




                                                       7
                   NEXT STEPS

 Conduct advocacy campaign amongst policy
    makers to allocate national resources for
    contraceptive commodities in the National
    health Budget
   Advocate for introduction of a budget line item
    for family planning in the National Health Budget
