T-MARC Company Grows Business through New Awards

The T-MARC Company Ltd, a Tanzanian-owned and operated company, has generated over $9 million through four recent business awards for assignments through 2013 that will expand its mission to improve the lives of Tanzanians through better health. Although it began operations less than two years ago, the T-MARC Company is successfully diversifying its project revenue streams, putting it on a clear trajectory to achieve long-term sustainability, an uncommon feat among startup non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the developing world. Founded with the assistance of the US-based Academy for Educational Development (AED), T-MARC Company is a non-profit consulting organization whose corporate objective is to build public-private partnerships in health. AED awarded the local company its first contract to manage the USAID Tanzania Marketing and Communications for AIDS, Reproductive Health and Child Survival (T-MARC) project, and it has since supported ’s efforts to develop additional business.

T-MARC Company’s new assignments will expand its work into new technical areas such as HIV and AIDS counseling and testing, male circumcision, and educating youth, while engaging new government partners such as the Tanzania Ministry of Education and Training and a range of international NGOs.

T-MARC Company now manages a contract and grant portfolio totaling over US $15 million, and it will soon expand its staff from 20 to 30. Among its new assignments, T-MARC Company will work with Baltimore-based JHPIEGO on the “Universal HIV and AIDS Counseling and Testing (UHAI), Mobilizing Innovative Strategies to Rapidly Increase Access and Use of HIV/AIDS Counseling and Testing Services in Tanzania” project. In addition, T-MARC Company will work with JHPIEGO on the “Mothers and Infants, Safe Healthy Alive (MAISHA) Program/Tanzania, Access to Clinical and Community Maternal Neonatal and Women Health Services in Tanzania” and with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on the “Families Matter Program –‘Zungumza Nae’ Engaging Parents in Sexual Risk Prevention Efforts Targeting Youth." T-MARC Company also won assignments from EngenderHealth to assist it with implementing the “CHAMPION - Channeling Men’s positive involvement on HIV and AIDS,” and to educate men on circumcision in connection with HIV prevention.
