What We Do

  • Disseminate integrated population, health, and environment (PHE) messages through trained PHE champions, who help community members understand the links between their health and their environment – and, as a result, help them to become more resilient.
  • Train community health workers on voluntary family planning counseling, distribution of short-term contraceptives, and referral of clients who want long-acting and permanent contraception.
  • Train and provide mentorship opportunities to local health care providers to provide quality sexual and reproductive health care at health facilities.
  • Enhance the capacity of local governments to facilitate integrated PHE programming.
  • Support health outreach events to bring quality care to people in remote areas that cannot easily access health facilities.
