Improving access to products and services through Tanzania’s private sector: Results, lessons, and what the future holds

September 15, 2021
Event description

Over the past 5 years the SHOPS Plus project in Tanzania has catalyzed private sector expertise engagement, improved human resources, introduced products and services, and increased access to finance to improve the country’s health outcomes.

SHOPS Plus and USAID/Tanzania will host a virtual meeting highlighting the project’s accomplishments and showcasing stories from our partners in both the private and the public sector. Discussions will focus on improving access to health products and services in the country through advocacy, dialogue, capacity building, partnership, networking, and the application of total market approaches. The panel discussion will conclude with next steps for private sector engagement in health.

This is an invitation-only meeting, but a recording will be available after the event takes place.
