Three Rural Districts Allocate $20,700 to Family Planning in Tanzania

Three rural districts made budget allocations for family planning totaling US $20,700 in the Lake Zone of Tanzania, which reports some of the lowest contraceptive prevalence rates in the country. Advocacy led by local Advance Family Planning partner Health Promotion Tanzania (HDT) culminated in the Serengeti District and Tarime Town Councils allocating funding from their own sources for the first time and Musoma Rural District Council more than doubling their family planning allocation from the previous year.
