Increasing Access to Reproductive Health

During the country’s civil war, 52% of the country’s health centers were closed. The decade-long gap in services has led to low use of modern contraceptives (13.9%) and a high fertility rate (5 births per woman). Our new project in Côte d’Ivoire focuses on improving the sexual and reproductive health for women and adolescents.

Project Date: 2016 - present

What We Do

  • Make 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
  • Increase demand for sexual and reproductive health services among adolescents, addressing social norms and behaviors that prevent them from seeking services, and increasing access to youth-friendly services at the community and facility level
  • Increase access to postpartum contraception as a critical measure in improving maternal and child health outcomes
