PRAGYA: Multisectoral, Gendered Approach to Improve Family Planning and Sexual and Reproductive Health for Young People
PRAGYA, meaning "insight" in Sanskrit, is a mixed methods study commissioned by USAID and conducted by Pathfinder India to improve understanding of the effects of Phases I and II of the PRACHAR project on family planning and sexual and reproductive health outcomes and related gender norms, attitudes and practices. Completed in December 2011, the report summarizes findings and provides recommendations for programs and interventions, policy, and future research.
This technical brief explores the process through which Pathfinder’s Integrated Family Health Program (IFHP+) has expanded availability of postpartum family planning, including the postpartum IUD, in Ethiopia.
Young married women and first-time parents (FTPs) face a unique set of challenges to living healthy sexual and reproductive lives. This series of trainings aim to give health care providers, community workers, and small group facilitators the knowledge and skills they need to meet the needs of these groups.
