The Government of Tanzania (GoT) has recognized the need to stop gender-based violence and strengthen services for survivors of GBV. In 2011, the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MoHSW) developed management guidelines for GBV services delivered within the health care setting and began training service providers in accordance with these guidelines. In 2012, with support from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through its Gender-based Violence Initiative (GBVI), the MoHSW began a phased rollout of these guidelines through training and facility support. The GBVI was aimed at strengthening coordination of GBV prevention and response efforts and their integration within existing HIV interventions. As the MoHSW moves forward with scale-up of the national guidelines, policymakers and program managers have identified the need to better understand the costs associated with GBV service delivery – for the purposes of estimating resource requirements for scale-up and also for exploring factors that drive the costs of GBV service delivery. The purpose of this study was to estimate the cost of delivering GBV services per client encounter at public health facilities in Tanzania and to understand the cost drivers of GBV service delivery in order to inform scale-up policies and planning.
