By making improvements to the supply of contraceptives and increasing communities’ knowledge and awareness of family planning and reproductive health, Pathfinder will increase utilization of these critical services.

In February 2012, Pathfinder received a subagreement to the USAID-funded Community Livelihood Project, a project that was implemented by Creative Associates International. Through this project, Pathfinder worked in partnership with the Ministry of Health to strengthen and maximize opportunities for quality family planning and maternal & newborn health in more than 35 health facilities in targeted governorates in the country.

The project trained more than 500 doctors and midwives in emergency obstetrics and reproductive health and family planning.

The Single-Visit Approach as a Cervical Cancer Prevention Strategy Among Women With HIV in Ethiopia: Successes and Lessons Learned

Cervical cancer is the second most common form of cancer for women in Ethiopia. Using a single-visit approach to prevent cervical cancer, the Addis Tesfa project tested women with HIV through visual inspection of the cervix with acetic acid wash and, if tests results were positive, offered immediate cryotherapy of the precancerous lesion or referral for loop electrosurgical excision procedure. The objective of this article is to review screening and treatment outcomes over nearly 4 years of project implementation and to identify lessons learned to improve cervical cancer prevention programs in Ethiopia and other resource-constrained settings.
