The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Communication Programs (CCP) led COMMIT in partnership with Jhpiego, Population Services International (PSI), the Research Triangle Institute (RTI), PMI, and the Tanzania Ministry of Health and National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP).

This training video from Tanzania teaches service providers how to connect with, and advise, adolescent girls on matters relating to family planning and reproductive health. It suggests that the provider get to know the young woman, learn about her background and interests, and advise her based on one-on-one conversation.

Mjanja Connect is a technology platform in Tanzania that leverages FHI's A360 program investments and insights, in order to increase the number of adolescent girls successfully referred for Family Planning Services by Community Health Educators (primarily) through the WHP program infrastructure.

This presentation offers an overview of the Kuwa Mjanja campaign in Tanzania, managed by FHI360, which delivers entrepreneurial skills and contraceptive counseling sessions— tailored to and branded for the unique needs of girls. Across disciplines and in partnership with girls, Kuwa Mjanja supports girls aged 15-19 to explore the role contraception plays in helping them achieve their life dreams.

The Landscape Conservation in Western Tanzania (LCWT) activity works to protect endangered chimpanzee populations, safeguard their habitat through effective land use planning, and empower local communities by supporting more productive and sustainable livelihoods in the Gombe-Masito-Ugalla (GMU) landscape.

This study supports the importance of including Family Planning /Maternal and Child Health as part of integrated projects to enhance resilience. The paper identifies components of resilience that could be measured in Population Health and the Environment (PHE) and other integrated development projects, and uses data from a PHE project in western Tanzania to measure resilience and better understand the links between resilience and family planning.
