Uhuru-TB&FP LON (“Freedom-Tuberculosis & Family Planning”) is a five-year activity which aims to improve access to and use of quality Tuberculosis (TB) and family planning (FP) service delivery in public and private sector health facilities in four regions of Tanzania. TB case finding and detection are challenged by inappropriate management, poor documentation, inadequate collection systems and diagnostic capacity, along with sociocultural barriers, stigma, and gender disparity.


Tanzania, with assistance from Global Fund and the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) is providing insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) free of charge through all public health facilities nationwide to pregnant women at their first antenatal care clinic visit and to infants during their measles vaccination. In addition, on Mainland Tanzania, ITNs are delivered annually to primary school children in selected grades in all public schools in 14 regions of the country that were reported to have a malaria prevalence greater than 10 percent.


Police and Prisons is a five-year activity which aims to improve HIV and TB prevention, treatment, care, and support services within 32 prison healthcare facilities. Prisoners are at greater risk of acquiring tuberculosis (TB), with many prison health facilities having limited ability to deliver comprehensive HIV and TB services. Police and prison staff also face higher risk than the general population due to their frequent relocations among other factors.


Afya Shirikishi (“Participatory Health”) is a five-year activity which aims to improve access to Tuberculosis (TB) and family planning (FP) services in nine regions of Tanzania. Tanzania ranks among the 30 highest TB-burdened countries in the world with an estimated TB prevalence at 295 cases per 100,000 population. Despite these challenges, the  National TB and Leprosy Program (NTLP), in collaboration with USAID and international and local IPs, has significantly addressed the TB burden in Tanzania, maintaining a decline in TB incidence rate above 4% per year. 


The United States Government, represented by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is seeking offers/applications from qualified persons for two Development Outreach and Communication (DOC) Specialists. The DOC Specialists are responsible for advancing U.S. Government strategic communications objectives through targeted outreach to Tanzanian stakeholders.
