  • Overview

    Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus is a five-year global, USAID-funded Cooperative Agreement awarded to Abt Associates and partners in September 2015. The mandate of SHOPS Plus is to increase the role of the private sector in the sustainable provision and use of quality family planning (FP), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/ acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), maternal and child health (MCH) and other health information, products, and services. The project seeks to harness the full potential of the private sector and catalyze public-private engagement to improve health outcomes. By increasing the participation and effectiveness of the private health sector, SHOPS Plus improves the equity and quality of the total health system.

    For Tanzania’s rural and urban poor, Accredited Drug Dispensing Outlets (ADDOs) are often the entry point to the health system. Underserved populations depend on ADDOs for access to essential health commodities and services. While ADDOs play an important role in health service provision, the quality of business practices and overall financial sustainability of ADDOs vary widely. In order to address these challenges, the SHOPS Plus project is undertaking a business strengthening program focused on ADDOs.
