About Marie Stopes Tanzania

Marie Stopes Tanzania is part of Marie Stopes International, a global partnership of sexual and reproductive healthcare organization, established in 1989.

Our friendly, experienced and supportive team of clinical experts help women and men lead happier, healthier sexual lives. We are Tanzania’s largest specialists in family planning, comprehensive post abortion care and reproductive health service provision. We also work to improve access to contraception to people in all the regions of the country, especially the underserved and marginalized.

Reaching under served Communities in Tanzania

Marie Stopes Tanzania is Tanzania’s largest specialized sexual reproductive health and family planning organization, established in 1989.

We provide a range of reproductive health services including:

  • Family planning
  • Health screening
  • Maternal health
  • Post-abortion care
  • Cervical cancer screening
  • Primary healthcare
  • Ante-natal care and maternity services
  • STI and HIV screening and referral
  • Malaria screening and treatment
  • Immunizations and child health checks

Marie Stopes Tanzania also empowers youth and adolescents by engaging them in youth friendly communication and activities, designed to educate and inform about sexual reproductive health.

Our focus is to deliver services predominantly in hard-to-reach rural locations and urban slums through our clinical outreach teams.

We provide 30% of the modern method contraceptives used by women in Tanzania, and approximately 70% of the long acting and permanent (LAPM) methods.

Children by choice, not chance

We always follow the Marie Stopes approach, using evidence to guide our decisions.

This leads our approach when delivering services, promoting sexual reproductive health awareness and working with trusted partners.

Marie Stopes Tanzania aspires to reach out to approximately 2 million new contraceptive users by 2020 as a way of complimenting the government’s efforts. Our core promise is to ensure that 70% of contraceptive users reached by Marie Stopes Tanzania are those living in poverty, to ensure we are helping those with the greatest need.
