Reaching the Poor? Wide Inequities in Contraceptive Access in Tanzania

The Government of United Republic of Tanzania acknowledges that family planning must be prioritized in an effort to address poverty, and that family planning is an economic issue. In its poverty reduction strategy (MKUKUTA II 2010-2015), the government has set to reduce the average number of children per woman of reproductive age (Total Fertility Rate) from 5.4 to 5.0, and reduce maternal mortality from 454 to 265 per every 100,000 live births, and neonatal mortality from 26 to 19 per 1,000 births by 2015.
