Abstract: 

The RESPOND Project worked with local partners to implement COPEĀ® for contraceptive security (CS) in two districts in Tanzania (Newala in Mtwara Region, and Meru in Arusha Region). The partnership included the MOHSW, the Medical Stores Department (MSD), EngenderHealthā€™s ACQUIRE Tanzania Project (ATP), and USAID|DELIVER. One objective of the activity was to document how COPEĀ® for CS can improve district and facility ownership and capacity to manage FP forecasting, budgeting, requisition, and inventory control. A second goal was to test the effectiveness of the new COPEĀ® for CS tool at increasing access for all FP methods, including the requirements for the long-acting and permanent methods of contraception (LA/PMs).
