Jhpiego serves as TCI’s implementing partner in East Africa. Between 2010 and 2015, the Jhpiego-led Tupange Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (URHI) Project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, implemented supply and demand-side interventions, as well as advocacy efforts in five urban cities in Kenya to address urban family planning. Thanks to these efforts, the contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR) in these cities increased from 45% to 58% over the project implementation period, marking unprecedented improvements (MLE, Tupange, 2014). Now, TCI collaborates with local governments in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania to expand family planning services and reach women and girls with voluntary family planning services. As a groundbreaking, demand-driven model, TCI scales up successful URHI innovations and other interventions to ensure quality reproductive health services are extended to more women and girls.
