Contracting Reproductive Health Services in Rural Tanzania

Marie Stopes Tanzania Experience 2005-2011

This health financing case study describes the contracting model that operated between Marie Stopes Tanzania and 13 Local Government Authorities from 2005 to 2011. The program was envisioned with dual objectives: first, to increase access to comprehensive maternal, newborn, child and HIV/AIDS services in remote areas; and second, to design and implement a public-private partnership model of cooperation between a non0state health provider and decentralized Local Government Authorities. This contracting experience provides an interesting example of how donors can support national governments and non-state actors like MSI to pilot new partnerships for the benefit of the population.
