PSI/Tanzania leads A360’s work in Tanzania. Through in-depth interviewing and immersion into communities, PSI/Tanzania has been able to identify opportunities to make contraception relevant and accessible for adolescents. PSI/Tanzania is currently testing prototypes around incorporating contraception into a larger conversation about menarche and body changes. Parents are involved as advocates and influencers, having girls identify which providers they consider to be truly youth-friendly.
Our work in Tanzania benefited from an initial year of funding, design, and capacity-building support from Maverick Collective member Pam Scott. This work was a springboard for the A360 efforts that began in early 2016, and led to some of the breakthrough insights and solutions that are being piloted now.

This document is intended to capture learning derived from A360’s prototyping with married girls and their influencers in Tanzania. It reflects the voices of the people the A360 team met and complements earlier insight work focused on unmarried girls as the team seeks to identify overlapping and divergent design opportunities for the two groups.
