Webinar: Improving access to products and services through Tanzania’s private sector

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 hosted a virtual meeting highlighting the project’s accomplishments and showcased stories from our partners in both the private and the public sector. Discussions focused 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 concluded with next steps for private sector engagement in health.
