Term of Reference for Developing Mobile Application using DHIS 2 or OpenSRP for provision of Family Planning services in the community using the Balanced Strategy Plus as well as the Tanzanian Family Planning Guidelines

1. Background

Pathfinder International received funding from USAID through Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) to implement Reproductive Health/Family Planning activities under the Landscape Conservation in Western (LCWT) Tanzania project. Within the LCWT project, reproductive health (RH)/family planning (FP) activities fall under intermediate result (IR) 4 which covers both community and health facility-based FP interventions. The community-based interventions include recruitment, training, and working with community health workers (CHWs) in the provision of voluntary FP education, services, referrals and referral tracking for client follow up. The facility-based interventions include training of health service providers on comprehensive FP counselling and provision of both Short Acting methods (SA) and Long Acting Revisable Contraceptives (LARCs). Other facility-based interventions are supportive supervision, on the job mentorship of the providers as well as supporting the health facilities and the providers to comply with family planning and environmental standard provisions and procedures. In addition, the project implements mobile outreach clinics, whereby teams of trained service providers travel to remote villages and health facilities and work in collaboration with CHWs and village leaders to mobilize and delivery voluntary FP information and services to women, men and youth.
