As countries increasingly make national commitments to family planning (FP), there is also a need to foster accountability for fulfilling them. In Tanzania, as in many countries, those commitments can be manifested in many different ways. Top-down, high-level policy documents, including poverty-reduction strategy papers and national development strategies, often include commitments to FP. Within the Ministry of Health, which bears the responsibility for implementing FP commitments, strategy documents, such as Tanzania’s One Plan for Maternal and Child Health, incorporate FP as a priority. In addition, Tanzania’s costed implementation plan (CIP) for FP-developed in 2010 and later rolled into the One Plan-identifies challenges to achieving commitments, presents appropriate strategies and the costs for implementing them, and estimates the benefits if the country is successful.
