- Primary Health Care
Pathfinder works with local partners in Côte d’Ivoire to strengthen access to and use of quality contraceptive services, advance the right to abortion, and promote free postpartum and immediate post-abortion contraception. We implement a variety of programs with and for women and girls and engage men and boys in family planning as supportive partners and agents of social and behavior change.
In Côte d’Ivoire, Pathfinder provides invaluable support to the Ministry of health to make quality sexual and reproductive health services accessible. This includes improving maternal and child health by making postpartum contraception available; linking communities and health systems so that women, men, and youth, regardless of their circumstances, have access to quality health services; and strengthening the capacity of health providers to deliver quality contraceptive care and services.
- Adolescent and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
Pathfinder supports and engages adolescents and youth so that can make informed and knowledgeable decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. We use evidence-based curricula that promote reflection on gender norms, attitudes, and behaviors, and use digital technologies to promote healthy sexual and reproductive behaviors.
- Contraceptive Access for All
Pathfinder partners with community-based organizations, community health workers, and youth organizations to increase demand for contraception. With our local partners, we apply social and behavior change approaches to eliminate stigma related to contraception and sexual and reproductive health issues and promote contraceptive access for all through community dialogues, guided tours, focus group discussions, and digital platforms. We also engage men and boys in contraceptive programs for greater gender equity in relationships, families, and communities.
- Comprehensive Abortion Care
Pathfinder ensures women and girls know their rights and have the information they need to access comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care, including safe abortion and postabortion care. At the same time, Pathfinder sensitizes community and religious leaders on the consequences of unsafe abortion. We support local communities to take the lead in advocating for changes to social norms that suppress women’s rights to sexual and reproductive health care. By engaging community members in initiatives that reduce their prejudices and judgmental attitudes toward abortion services, we further women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights.
