TENDER OPPORTUNITIES

CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

Background

T-MARC Tanzania is a non-profit Tanzanian organization working to improve public health and promote social development. Our socially marketed products and behavior change communication initiatives address pertinent health issues in family planning and reproductive health, child survival, water and sanitation, nutrition and communicable/non-communicable infections like malaria, HIV/AIDS and cervical cancer.

T-MARC is currently implementing the USAID Tulonge Afya Project in partnership with Family Health International (FHI 360). USAID Tulonge Afya is a five-year project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) that aims to catalyse opportunities for Tanzanians to improve their health status by transforming socio-cultural norms and supporting the adoption of healthier behaviors through the following intermediate results;

  • Result 1: Improved ability of individuals to practice healthy behaviors

  • Result 2: Strengthened community support for health behaviors

  • Result 3: Improved systems for coordination and implementation of Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) interventions

T-MARC Tanzania has a wide range of partners working in public health including local and International Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), private sector, and government institutions. T-MARC believes that it is only through the collective efforts of many actors that positive health, social and economic outcomes can truly be achieved. We welcome and engage with diverse actors in a variety of ways, including long-term relationships, short term strategic alliances and active participation in networks and coalitions.

In light with the above background, T-MARC invites expression of interest from Tanzanian CSOs including Networks and Coalitions with suitable set of skills, knowledge and experience to develop, manage and implementing SBCC programs across the following health areas: of HIV, family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), malaria, maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), and tuberculosis (TB) working in the following District Councils (DC);
