Call for expression of interest December 2018

Friday, 21 December 2018 08:07

Background:

Tanzania Communication and Development Center (TCDC) is a non-government organization (NGOs) established in 2013. TCDC empowers Tanzanian people and communities through Social Behavior Change Communication (SBCC), SMART Advocacy Strategy and Social Development. TCDC uses SBCC and Advocacy to change behaviors, including health prevention practice and service utilization, by positively influencing knowledge, attitudes practice and social norms. TCDC’s mission is to strengthen the health and wellbeing of households and communities. 

TCDC is currently implementing the USAID Tulonge Afya Project in partnership with Family Health International (FHI 360). USAID Tulonge Afya is a five-year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) that aims to catalyze opportunities for Tanzanians to improve their health status by transforming socio-cultural norms and supporting the adoption of healthier behaviors through the following intermediate results;

·            Result 1: improved ability of individuals to practice healthy behaviors.

·            Result 2: strengthened community support for healthy behaviors.

·            Result 3: improved systems for coordination and implementation for Social Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) interventions.

TCDC has a wide range of partners working in Public Health including local and international civil society organizations (CSOs), private sector, and government institutions. TCDC believes that it is only through the collective efforts of many actors that positive health, social and economic outcomes can truly be achieved. We welcome and engage with diverse actors in variety of ways, including long-term relationships, short term strategic alliances and active participation in networks and coalitions.
