Increasing Access to Reproductive Health

With funding from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation in Côte d’Ivoire, Pathfinder is working with the Ministry of Health and other partners to create an enabling social and political environment for sexual and reproductive health and rights. We do this by reducing barriers that impede access to contraceptive services, maternal and newborn health care, and comprehensive abortion care. We specifically focus on ensuring adolescents and young people can access contraception.

What We Do

  • Work with policymakers and local communities to influence and improve the enabling environment for access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services (including abortion) through community dialogues and the implementation of the free family planning policy.
  • Support young champions to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights among adolescents and young people in and out of schools— especially access to contraception, management of unwanted pregnancies, and policies conducive to SRH services.
  • Advocate or mobilize resources at the health district level through Comités Techniques d’Appui aux Districts.
