  1. ‘Ongea Zaidi na Salama’Using mobile phone networks to improve Condom Social Marketing in TanzaniamHealth Working Group, Feb. 2011

  2. PSI Tanzania • Globally connected, Locally engaged • Registered in Tanzania since 1993 as a not for profit trust • Part of a network of 67 PSI country platforms • Using commercial markets to improve the health of low income and vulnerable people • Decentralized management • Rigorous measurement of performance • “Healthy Lives, Measurable Results

  3. Condom Social Marketing • Over 85 million condoms in 2009 • PSI and T-Marc • >100,000 outlets selling condoms • Range of brands available

  4. Problem statement • Condom distribution works on a ‘push’ rather than ‘pull’ system • Relies on PSI teams to make deliveries • Low value of subsidized condoms – do not generate significant turnover for retailer • Prioritize other products (biscuits, batteries, sugar etc) • Retailers not worried if they stock out of condoms • How can PSI motivate retailers to actively ensure condoms are consistently available in their outlets?

  5. Opportunity • High mobile phone ownership in target group (PSI Map survey data 2009) • Urban retailers: > 80% mobile phone ownership • Rural retailers: > 70% mobile phone ownership • Growing number of sms applications make users more confident • Mobile phone companies willing • Three largest out of five participating in scheme • Cash transfer systems in existence

  6. mSolution • PSI created a ‘loyalty reward scheme’ • Similar to Airmiles, or mobile phone ‘talk more’ scheme • Retailers find scratch card in condom dispenser • retail unit, 24 x packs of three condoms • scratchcard has hidden, unique10 digit number • Retailers register (one-off step) on system • Submit sms with ward, district & outlet type • Retailers submit scratchcard number by sms • System rewards retailers with airtime • Retailers rewarded at initial registration and for each scratch card number submitted • ‘Loyalty bonuses’ for every 10th card submitted

  7. To enroll: To enroll, SMS the following string Enroll*ward*district*type of outlet SMS code Type of outlet SMS codes: Type 1 for kiosk Type 2 shop (duka) Type 3 bar/guesthouse Type 4 drugstore (duka la dawa) Type 5 pharmacy Type 6 NGO/Institution 15077 jisajili*kata*wilaya*1 Send to 15077

  8. To submit a scratch card Purchase dispenser of condoms; find scratch card inside; scratch off foil to reveal unique 10 digit number 15077 Psi*1234567890 To submit scratch card, SMS the following: psi*1234567890 Send to 15077

  9. Why is this information useful? • Provides data on product availability by ward • Nationally, and instantly up to date • Ward level population data exists; HIV prevalence data can be estimated • There are over 3,000 wards in Tanzania • Key indicator to track: • Sales per head of population (and per risk factor - % HIV prevalence)

  10. Expected improvements • Improved targeting of interventions • Improved trade promotions • Improved staff motivation • Improved partnering • Improved monitoring • Improved reporting

  11. Process • System development • Tender process – May 2008 • Voxiva selected – July 2008 • Systems requirements defined – Aug-Dec 2008 • Payment system developed – mid 2009 • Pilot phase (Nov ‘09 to Jan ’10) • National roll out underway • Radio campaign planned for June 2010

  12. Web portal access

  13. Results to date • Registration growing • 830 enrolled in system in May 2010 • 30,000 enrolled by November 4th 2010 • Of those, 27,400 are active • All regions are reporting

  15. Links to other activities GPS report - February 2010 activities – PSI/Tanzania

  16. Challenges faced • Defining requirements • Negotiations with mobile companies • Payment amounts small per unit (per retailer) but large in aggregate • Surprisingly hard to find * key • Cost of scratch cards • Recruitment of database administrator • Data not useful until scale is achieved • Accuracy of data entry

  17. The future • Achieve scale • Adjust retailer/wholesaler/distributor rewards based on performance • Create new incentives for PSI field teams • Conduct regular sms surveys with retailers • Develop new NGO partnerships • Roll out to other health products • Family planning, malaria, diarrheal disease
