In November 2015, the UNFPA Executive Board approved UNFPA Tanzania’s country programme 2016-2021. The five-year programme supports the Government of Tanzania’s Five-Year Development Plan (FYDP II 2016-2022) and the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar’s Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty III, 2016-2020 (MKUZA III) in alignment with the National Visions (the Tanzania Development Vision 2025 and Zanzibar Vision 2020); the Sustainable Development Goals; the United Nations Development Assistance Plan II (UNDAPII 2016-2021); and UNFPA’s corporate Strategic Plan 2018-2021.  This is UNFPA’s eighth country programme in Tanzania.

The country programme outputs include:

  • Sexual and reproductive health and rights

Increased national and subnational government capacity to deliver integrated sexual and reproductive health services to women and men, with a particular focus on adolescents and young people.

  • Adolescents and youth

Increased capacity of government and civil society organizations to design and implement comprehensive programmes to reach marginalized adolescents and implement community-based life skills education programmes that promote human rights and gender equality.

  • Gender equality and women’s empowerment

Strengthened capacity of government and civil society to prevent and respond to gender-based violence, female genital mutilation, and child, early and forced marriage.

  • Population dynamics

Strengthened capacity of government and national institutions for the availability and utilization of high-quality disaggregated data for formulation, implementation and monitoring of policies and programmes, including in humanitarian settings.
