PROJECTS & PROGRAMS

USAID Social Enterprise Support Activity (USESA)

OVERVIEW

This is a project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by T-MARC Tanzania in collaboration with other partners in the private sector. Its goal is to improve the health status and sustain economic growth in Tanzania by preventing the spread of disease (particularly HIV/AIDS) and unwanted pregnancies.

To support this goal, USESA ensures the achievement of the following objectives:

  • Increased supply and sale of Dume condoms and Flexi P Oral Contraceptive Pills (OCPs) to target groups willing and able to pay for these products.
  • Increased demand among target consumer groups for Dume and Flexi P products.
  • 
Strong social enterprise of T-MARC-Tanzania’s health products i.e. Dume and Flexi P to reduce grant dependence to self-sustainability.

USESA adopts social enterprise approaches and tools to transition Dume and Flexi P products to full cost recovery and ensure their sustainability without donor support by 2019. The project targets middle-income audiences with the ability to pay for the full commercial value of the products.

T-MARC Tanzania works collaboratively with other market players to segment the condom and OCP markets in a manner that increases the user base for these products to achieve market growth. USESA works with private sector distributors on a win-win basis to expand the accessibility of Dume and Flexi P in urban centers.
