Hati punguzo programme

The Hati Punguzo programme aims to provide all pregnant women with a voucher that can be used to purchase a discounted Long lasting Insecticidal Net (LLIN). Pregnant women should be provided with a Hati Punguzo at their first Antinetal care (ANC) visit. For women who did not attend antenatal care or who did not receive a Hati Punguzo at an ANC visit, a second opportunity to receive one occurs when she brings her infant for his or her first vaccinations. Currently, the Hati Punguzo programme operates only on Mainland Tanzania

The NMCP communication strategy describes targeted primary audiences – that is, the core group of people on whom the strategic communication objectives are focused and for whom the primary behaviour change is expected to take place. With regard to the Hati Punguzo programme, the primary audience is adult women and men, particularly those who are or are about to become mothers, fathers, and caregivers. All female and male respondents in Mainland Tanzania were asked if they had heard of the Hati Punguzo programme. If they responded affirmatively, they were asked where they had heard about the programme.
