Internships: viewing all internships from Tanzania
Through the Bixby Internship, Rebecca helped launch an evaluation of a Family Planning Mobile Job Aid for Community Health Workers in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The goal of this project is to critically examine an innovative mobile technology-based approach to increasing access to family planning information and services at the community-level.
As a Bixby Summer Intern, Rose worked with the Ministry of Health in Zanzibar to assess the feasibility of measuring maternal mortality and assigning cause of death using a community-based strategy. This strategy is currently in use in Ethiopia, and the hope is to adapt the methodology to the Zanzibar context.
Martine helped evaluate the community’s use, safety, and acceptability of misoprostol and the feasibility and effectiveness of using TBAs to administer misoprostol to treat PPH in Kigoma, Tanzania.
Ms. Holden went to Tanzania in March to develop a distribution network for misoprostol and lay the foundation for policy approval of the drug.
Jessica worked with the Community Based Distribution (CBD) program of the Lake Tanganyika Catchment Reforestation and Education Project (TACARE), a division of the Jane Goodall Institute.
