Description/achievement of initiative

Pathfinder International commits to work with The Nature Conservancy and Frankfurt Zoological Society to raise at least US $250,000 to launch an integrated family planning and maternal and child health program in the extremely remote villages surrounding Mahale Mountains National Park in Tanzania. The project will launch in 2012 and we anticipate continuing for at least five years with additional funds raised. This project is focused entirely on the hardest-to-reach women and children without access to the government health system. The main focus is family planning, along with prenatal care, delivery and postnatal care, newborn care, immunizations and adolescent reproductive health.

Implementation methodologies

This will be done through training of health personnel and of additional community health workers to conduct home visits, and substantial improvements to existing health facilities, to the benefit all women of reproductive age, children, and adolescents seeking maternal, newborn and child health and contraceptive services. Pathfinder International promises to develop and test innovative approaches; integrate essential services for the most vulnerable; educate, engage and mobilize communities to seek their own solutions; track progress through monitoring and evaluation; strengthen local capabilities to scale up interventions; and advocate for increased attention and government investments to women's and children's health, especially family planning. We will coordinate with government and community organizations and introduce available technologies, such as mobile phones, where appropriate.
