What We Did

  • Worked hand-in-hand with the government to improve the quality and availability of contraceptive, maternal, newborn, and child health services
  • Made sure short-term, long-acting, permanent, and emergency contraception are always available so people of all ages can choose the method that’s best for them
  • Built the capacity of national and regional health authorities to collect and use health data for decision-making, reduce stock-outs of essential drugs and supplies, and engage in mentoring of health providers at the facility level
  • Increased educational and future economic opportunities available to girls by working with community leaders to cancel or defer early marriages
  • Trained health providers and community leaders to identify and refer women and girls experiencing obstetric fistula for treatment
